I am Adam Bandt - Federal Member for Melbourne and Deputy Leader of the Australian Greens
Hi. I’m Adam the federal Greens Member for Melbourne.
My colleague WA Greens Senator Scott Ludlam conducted an iAMA a few weeks ago and said it was a lot of fun. So this afternoon I’m going to do one of my own.
In 2010 Melbourne had a big impact on national politics by shifting to the Greens and electing me to the House of Representatives. There are many unique challenges and opportunities facing Australia and I’m proud to have been involved in moving Australia in the right direction.
Since 2010 I have been fighting for the things that matter. And I want to know what matters to you and the issues important to you at this election. Plus I want to let you know a little more about me too.
You don’t have to be just from my electorate to ask questions. But I will ask you to keep the questions clean and please don’t post malicious, defamatory, threatening or hateful comments or questions.
Here’s a picture of me in the office and a couple of links to verify that it’s me :-)
That was great fun. Thanks for having me. I really enjoyed reading your questions and the comments being left.
I enjoyed not just the number of questions, but also the high level of engagement. If the MSM and Parliament conducted its debates more like this, Australia would probably be a better place.
Over the next week I'll try to answer the questions I couldn't get to today.
Thanks for dropping by and giving this first time Redditor some great questions and food for thought.
