*Editor Victor P Taffa contested the seat of Sydney as an Independent Candidate.
Since 1999, Editor Victor P Taffa has contested elections that support Heavy Rail Expansion and Improvements. The public wants High Speed Rail (HSR) at speeds of 450 Km/h to every Capital City including Hobart via a Roll-on Roll-off Rail Ferry across Bass Strait in preference to Rapid Transit Metro Rail in Sydney and Melbourne.
In starving Editor Victor P Taffa of campaign funds and resources in the district of Sydney over a 12 month period has done nothing to diminish Victor P Taffa as a person nor the issue of Heavy Rail Expansion and the public demand for HSR.
Sydney and Melbourne do not need two conflicting Rail Technologies and this is being bourne out in voting patterns across the State of New South Wales.
Editor Victor P Taffa will contest a State Election again.
Editor Victor P Taffa will not contest the next Federal or Local Government Elections.
