VOTING SUGGESTIONS FOR DAREBIN COUNCIL ELECTION
By now you will have received your ballot paper for the Darebin Council Elections. However with over 15 candidates in each ward, many of them unknowns, some of them ‘dummy’ candidates, how can voters choose who to support? We believe actions speak louder than words. Our independent how-to-vote recommendations are based on the actions of candidates not just their 150 word statement – click the pictures below to review our analysis!
As you will have read in our previous newlsetter, DarebinCAN has worked as part of the Darebin Community Network to send questionnaires to candidates and to collate their responses into a scorecard on views and action on:
- climate change, sustainability, appropriate development, accessibility, responsiveness and,
- the candidate’s preference allocation has also been noted for consistency with the candidate’s policies.
These scorecards were sent to you in our last newlsetter. Thanks to our willing letterboxinger’s this has gone to 22,000 households in Darebin.
Here below are the candidates we listed on the scorecards for Rucker and Cazaly wards – and we have now added suggestions about how to vote.
Don’t forget to fill in your voting paper asap to make sure it is returned in time to count by October 26.
PLEASE SEND THE SCORECARDS ON TO FRIENDS AND CONTACTS YOU THINK MIGHT VALUE THESE VOTING SUGGESTIONS.
