Hi, all. Most of you know that a member of our group, Ryan Otto ran in the recent election under the banner of the Australian Federation Party. Because he only received 1.6% of the vote, he isn't eligible for financial support from the federal government. We'd like to see that he gets something back. The current rate of reimbursement is $2.914 per eligible vote. Ryan received 1,242 first preference votes (well done!). $3619 would be the reimbursement amount. We have already had a generous donation of $100 so we are looking to raise $3519 in total. 

We have enough people in the groups to do this easily. Can you spare $5 or $10 for Ryan for standing up and putting his face out there and his name on the ballot? Your donations go directly to Ryan. Thank you all.
