Darebin Council Election 2012 – candidate score card

Candidate score card

As you probably know there have been some very troubling recent times in Darebin Council with regard to climate change, development, accountability and responsibility.

  • The Council voted to discontinue Darebin’s membership of the Northern Alliance for Greenhouse Action (NAGA) depriving residents of more than $1.5 million in practical help to reduce their greenhouse emissions and their power bills.  More here
  • Many residents have been disturbed by Council deciding in favour of inappropriate development counter to Council policy. More here 
  • Council decision making and possible State and Federal political interference on planning and grants has been referred for investigation by the State Government Ombusdman. More here

In this context the Darebin Community Network was formed by several local community groups to help the community make informed decisions about their vote in the upcoming elections.

DCAN has been an active member and we hope you will consider climate change a key factor in your vote.

Candidates have been sent a questionnaire on their attitudes and active history on climate change, appropriate development, accountability and responsiveness.

Here are the resulting scorecards for Rucker Ward and Cazaly Ward (individual responses are listed below).

More details can be found on the website of Darebin Community Network.
