Gabrielle Chan, Journalist
Gabrielle moved from the Canberra press gallery when she married a sheep and wheat farmer in 1996. She noticed the economic and cultural divide between the city and the country, the differences in political culture and yawning gap between the parliament and small town life.
In September 2017, she swapped interviewing politicians to interviewing ordinary people on her main street to discover why they think politics has moved so far from their lives. The result is her 2018 book, Rusted Off: Why country Australia is fed up. In the book, Gabrielle draws conclusions about the current state of our rural political representation, the gap between city and country and how to bridge it.
