National By William PJ Kulich // 20:13, Sunday 28 June 2015
CONSTITUENTS of the McMillan electorate who support same sex marriage have started a campaign to encourage Liberal MP Russell Broadbent to vote for equality.
First published in the 12 June 2015 edition of the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.
A vote on allowing same sex marriage may reach the federal parliament in coming months, and several MPs have recently changed their stance on the issue to support a change in the law.
Gippsland Nationals MP Darren Chester this week said he would vote for marriage equality if given the chance, but Mr Broadbent has not revoked his previous stated position of opposition.
Labor McMillan candidate Chris Buckingham has said he would support a same sex marriage bill.
A Facebook page, McMillan Residents For Marriage Equality, and a petition have been started to encourage Mr Broadbent to change his stance. You can find both via Facebook: facebook.com/McMillanForEquality
