Greens could win Mayo, says Downer

"Voting Green is the best way to focus national attention on the Murray" - Brown

Alexander Downer's anguished letter to the voters of Mayo expressing fear that the Greens' Lynton Vonow or an independent could win the seat means just that - the Liberals could lose on Saturday, Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown said today.

"And no one will be more to blame than Alexander Downer himself because he dumped Mayo after his party lost office last November," Senator Brown said.

"Voting Green is an attractive option in Mayo and the best way to focus national attention on the Murray River.

"There is a sterling opportunity to for the people of Mayo to send Lynton Vonow to the House of Representatives and get the region the attention it deserves," Senator Brown said.
