"Hi, I'm Esther and I'm your Greens candidate for Central Ward. What issues are important to you?"
Unfortunately, I can't ask this question at your door during this council campaign. I'm committed to learning the concerns and priorities of Central Ward residents and hope you can join me for a short zoom session to let me know yours.
So far I'm hearing parks, recycling, treatment of asylum seekers, and safe and clean streets as just a few key issues. Tell me about what life looks like on your street, and how council can help. You might even meet a few new neighbours.
For this session, we will be joined by your current Councillor for Cazaly Ward, Steph Amir.
We'll keep these sessions small to encourage discussion. Please RSVP and you'll receive the link to join.
Q. Do I live in Central Ward?
A. Good question! The wards are brand new, so most people won't know what ward they're in yet. Central Ward is bounded by Tyler St, Darebin Creek, Bell St and the railway line, but also includes a small part south of Bell St to Raglan St. Best to take a look at this map below, or check out the VEC page for Darebin for more information.
