I have been a Councillor since 2012 and a City of Melbourne resident my entire adult life.
Melbourne is at a crossroads, growing faster than at any time since
the gold rush. I love this city’s eclectic mix of people, buildings
and experiences, but this is at risk from development that doesn’t
always consider long-term value, quality and sustainability.
Good design saves money: it makes buildings energy effcient
and affordable, and creates vibrant, walkable and interesting
streets. As your Lord Mayor I will fght for development that’s in
the public interest, free from developer and gambling donations.
I will champion a city that’s welcoming for everyone, and takes
homelessness seriously. I will ensure any Queen Victoria Market
renewal genuinely consults traders and the community, and retains
the market’s grittiness and heritage as an affordable, fresh food
market. As a hardworking Councillor with a track record of effective
collaboration with Councillors and the community, I can hit the
ground running, bring energy and transparency to the Lord Mayor’s
offce, and lead a Council with a healthy culture that delivers for
you, our residents, businesses and ratepayers.
