Martin you've spent enough time in council and our rates have continued to rise. It's time for a change. We need a council that supports residents, not just big business!
Maybe we could do a review of the CEO's salary? Councillors voted to increase it in a secret meeting last year and, to my understanding, have refused to release the details of his new salary.
Good point by Susan Yengi - it'd be great for youth to have somewhere meaningful to spend their time. It'd also be great to have more focus on alternative transport options other than just cars.
Mohammed went some way to answering the question by saying more investment in mens sheds and neighbourhood houses which help break down social isolation which is a contributor to mental health
Can any of the candidates justify why our rates are among the highest in Victoria and higher than both Toorak and Brighton. This concerns residents.
Great to hear from the candidates!
Great input well done ASU
a very informative forum, thanks candidates, and organsiers.
Thanks for taking the time candidates, even the ones that annoyed me!
Very interesting conversation tonight. Thanks ASU and all participants.
I’m really concerned as a resident about low job security for lowest paid part time council workers. What will you do to improve this at Maribyrnong? With rates being what they are council can afford to do better.
Greg and Barry - all have put out material authorised and printed by Huong Nguyen. Available at the misleadingly named 2020 Maribyrnong Council Election page
Make no mistake: Martin Zakharov is STILL looking to give away our beloved park. He just won't listen.
SAVE FOOTSCRAY PARK!
Very textbook response Liz Walsh
Rates are part of broader influences, ie; State regs - its about getting more 'bang for your buck $"
Where are the rest of the candidates?
If Simon is all for people keeping their jobs, why was he happy to outsource aged care?
Mohamed loved your work during the tower lockdown
Perhaps our elected candidates need to press and advocate to state government for more funding
Oh classic Zakharov. Dissemble and confuse, and avoid owning the fact that the workers were stood down.
They do not have the same conditions.
Mohamed you're a breath of fresh air. We need you in council!
I'm in the ASU and I got a text message about it
oh like that place theyre proposing at the funeral home in seddon? isnt that a pseudo-eco place with no parking?
