BENDIGO BY-ELECTION
TV Message from the Prime Minister
( Recorded 23 May_ 1969)
On June the 7th you will elect a representative for
Bendigo to the Federal Parliament. I ask you to elect Warren
Cambridge, the Liberal Party candidate, to help me and my
Government. He's Bendigo born and bred, active in community
service and, of course, was Mayor of Bendigo last year. He knows
Bendigo's special problems and can raise those problems where it
counts as a member of the Government ' s team. But he also has a
vision of Australia's future as we do a developing land, a growing
land, a land where the ill and aged are cared for, a land which
helps its neighbours and which builds its defences. For effective
local representation and for the good of Australia's future bring
Bendigo into the Government and send us Councillor Cambridge on
June the 7th.
Note: This message will be broadcast 12 times by BCV-8
during the campaign. It will be used for the first
time at 8. 15 p. m. on Monday, 26 May.
