How can the two party politicians talk about innovation? Their inaction has resulted in us having the 48th slowest Internet connectivity in the world. When the Internet stops … business, education, and other essential services stop. To compete in the global economy, we must embrace the digital revolution now.  If elected, Stephen will have  questions to ask.



Imagine a democracy in which our elected officials had been trained to research an issue and make balanced, logical decisions. A world where politicians did not have to spend their time defending poor policy, and fighting amongst themselves. In a modern world, where we need to feed 7 billion people there is no other option. Please consider voting for Stephen Ruff this Saturday. See http://sruff.org.


Respect for Democracy

This is what the Liberal party did at Willoughby girls high school during the recent by-election for North Sydney. There was almost no space for other candidates to post their election material. Legalities aside, it would seem to demonstrate a disregard for the democratic process in this country. If you believe in a fair go, vote for Stephen this Saturday. His helpers will be walking on the pavement wearing T-shirts. We have been told that some of the major political parties this election have ordered runs of plastic wrap of up to 200,000 meters. That is 2 km of signage.


The Digital Age

How the North Shore of Sydney has changed! “The Royal North Shore Hospital maintains a flock of 31 sheep in order to keep down the grass on the lawn” — Sydney Morning Herald – 1920’s. Stephen recognizes the importance of understanding our history, but at the same time looks to the future. He strongly advocates embracing the opportunities that the new digital age will offer our community.
