One thought on “Dr Corinda Essex Elected As Member of Legislative Council

  1. Dear Corinda,
    A voice from the past!
    Congratulations (though belated!) on your landslide election.

    Would be nice to hear from you, if you have time to drop a quick private email.

    Ref. your teaching me long ago for my English ‘A’level, I’m now studying Shakespeare in retirement, & we’ve been Globe attendees for some years.

    with very best wishes
