My name's Wayne Jansson and I've been reporting politics for No Fibs since, Cathy McGowan won the federal seat of Indi from Liberal powerbroker, Sophie Mirabella in 2013. In 2019 in response to the growing number of community backed independents, No Fibs named our coverage Independents Day. Our aim at No Fibs is to provide on the ground reporting - give our readers a sense of what's happening in these campaigns and what's driving them on a local level. At No Fibs we're all volunteers and paying to provide the coverage has always been difficult for me - the proliferation of strong campaigns and my expanded role means I have to find funding. The money will pay for consumables, travel and when required accommodation expenses.
