This afternoon the ballot draw was conducted for candidates within each of the three council wards within Maroondah. The draw is conducted via computer using a randomly generated algorithm to determine the order of each nominated candidate.
There are eleven candidates who have nominated for the Mullum Ward and it would appear that a number of candidates are linked to overzealous developers who will threaten the leafy and green image of Maroondah.
While I am pleased to announce that I will be located on the first position of the ballot, I urge all residents not to cast a donkey vote in this election and instead take the time to consider the candidates that have nominated.
It is important that Maroondah is represented by councillors that are committed to making a difference. Please do Vote 1 Alex Makin to ensure that we can further create a sustainable and accessible municipality through a council that is accountable to the community.
