Wednesday, March 17th, 2010 - Henrietta Child
Independent Candidate for Cheltenham Henrietta Child today claimed her campaign is already reaping rewards for the local residents.

“We are seeing an escalation in promises from both major parties after years of silence,”, Ms Child said today.

“Suddenly the western corridor, and particularly Cheltenham, is on the political agenda.”

“I am proud of what I and a strong group of local supporters have already been able to achieve for this electorate, even before being elected,” Ms Child said.

“This week, the Labor Party has made a major announcement that the Accident and Emergency department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital will be upgraded. It's heartening that Jay Weatherill is reading my campaign material, and finally beginning to understand the issues of importance in his current seat,” she said.

Last week the Liberal party issued a media release promising to return the St Clair Recreation Park to community ownership if they are elected.

“I didn't anticipate such success when I decided to stand,” Ms Child said.

“But it encourages me to work harder for better results for this electorate.

"Finally, the people of Cheltenham have someone who is prepared to speak out for them, and I'm excited by the prospect of further achievements as their member of parliament,” she said.
