Greening Local Government in Glen Eira
The Greens are excited to be fielding a record number of candidates for the City of Glen Eira Council elections to be held in October this year. Neil Pilling, current Rosstown ward Councillor and City of Glen Eira Deputy Mayor, is standing again and is joined by Wilmars Mikelsons also for Rosstown ward, Thomas Sounness for Camden ward, and Rose Read and Brett Hedger for Tucker ward. With such a strong line-up of endorsed Greens candidates, The Greens are optimistic of gaining extra positions on Council and working to build a better Council for the City of Glen Eira.
Bayside-Glen Eira branch co-convenor, Jeannie Marsh, said ‘the Greens have endorsed a solid team of candidates representing a wealth of talent and a strong commitment to the people of Glen Eira’. Candidates come from a varied range of backgrounds and together have experience in areas including education, business, community services, urban planning and more. Most have lived in the City of Glen Eira for many years and some have raised families in the area. All are well connected to their local community and regularly interact with other residents through volunteer work with community service, educational and sporting organisations, and by participating in local activities such as dog walking groups.
‘The Bayside-Glen Eira branch of the Greens is thrilled to be putting forward such a strong team for the upcoming Council election’ Ms Marsh said, adding that she is ‘confident that residents will welcome the opportunity to make a difference in Glen Eira by electing Greens Councillors who are committed to the community and to delivering healthy, safe and liveable neighbourhoods’.
