Voices of Wannon choose Alex
Former triple j host, media personality and author Alex Dyson has today announced his candidacy for his home seat of Wannon at the
2022 Federal Election.
After his run at the seat in 2019 as an independent, Alex has seen partisan infighting, inaction and incompetence worsen, making the case for communities electing dedicated Independent candidates in 2022 stronger than ever.

Strengthening his local credentials Alex has been endorsed by Voices of Wannon, a local volunteer group dedicated to representing the concerns of citizens across the
He will be holding a public meet and greet with community
members at the Fletcher Jones Gardens on January 9 from 11am to 1pm and Alex welcomes everyone to come along.
