My name is Luke Whitington. I’ve started this blog as part of my campaign for election to the NSW Labor Policy Forum. Hopefully I’ll have time to continue to use it after the election is over- perhaps as a way to receive feedback from ALP members keen to have a say on the Policy Forum’s deliberations.
Here’s my bio for the election.
