Politics is becoming the preserve of professional careerists and
single-issue activists. I am neither. I have never been a member
of a political party, associated with a trade union or a developers’
lobby group. My only interest is in the people of Melbourne. Cities
and culture are my passions. For years I’ve been a guest presenter
on ABC radio, talking to leaders and listening to the people of
Melbourne. I understand the issues which make Melbourne tick.
My PhD in Anthropology, undertaken in the sprawling megacity
of Mumbai, asked the question ‘What makes community strong?’
My conclusion is just as applicable here: communities prosper
when they are connected to place; when their citizens can afford
the necessities of life; when their workers enjoy what they do and
outsiders are welcomed. My priorities if elected Melbourne’s frst
female Lord Mayor in almost 30 years – more than usually relevant
in this election – will be affordability, amenity, inclusion, safety and
integrity. Let’s address the culture of Town Hall, review the wrongheaded Victoria Market development, and above all work together.
Make Warhaft Lord Mayor. Let’s clean up the City of Melbourne.

YANG, Jennifer

Jennifer Yang is running for Lord Mayor to end the toxic culture at
Town Hall. As a twice-elected Mayor of Manningham she knows
how to get things done. Jennifer will bring residents and small
businesses back into the heart of Council decision making. As
Lord Mayor, Jennifer will ban Councillors from drinking when on
Council business. She will double the pensioner rates rebate and
put more money into resident-led local park upgrades. She will cut
red tape for retailers and restaurants by abolishing unnecessary
Council licenses, freeze all rates until 2020, and immediately
commence a Council-wide expenditure review. Jennifer believes
that homelessness is a serious problem requiring a meaningful
and substantial response. That’s why she will build permanent
crisis accommodation to get those sleeping rough off our streets,
into safety and on the path to secure long-term accommodation.
Jennifer is a proven leader in Melbourne’s vibrant multicultural
community and a devoted working mother. She is passionate about
creating a city of diversity, equality and prosperity. Most importantly,
she has the experience and energy to get our great city back on
