Port Phillip Council election on Saturday 27 October

Today, Jason Dowling wrote an Opinion piece in the Age  - 'How to make your council vote count'. The positive in a generally negative article lies in alerting people to the Council elections coming up on October 27. Dowling reminds readers of the significant influence Councils have on places - through planning, parks, and a wide range of services. He suggests that research on candidates is well worth doing.
As advised to Port Melbourne residents recently, I will not be contesting the Sandridge ward at the Port Phillip Council election. Thank you for the generous messages people have sent in response to that letter.
Over coming weeks, there will be more discussion on Port Focus about the Sandridge ward and the Port Phillip Council election.
