What a great turn out for the “Meet the Candidates” event on Wednesday 3rd October. A huge thank you to all those that came along (80 + people), including Mayoral candidates for Holdfast Bay and Marion, Ward Councillor candidates from Seacliff Ward (Holdfast Bay) and Coastal Ward (Marion) and loads of 5049 community members.
A particular vote of thanks to committee members Ric Bierbaum for his leadership on setting up and running this Forum ; as well as managing the complex protocols to maintain an equitable process; and Emma Sandery for her sterling support.
The "speed dating" sessions provided lots of opportunity to chat with our local candidates and raise local issues. Along with general inquiries about candidate’s policies, the following topics were brought up by the community on the night.
Thanks also to the volunteers who helped out on the night to keep things running smoothly and for capturing the key issues of concerns to our community.
The candidate profiles submitted in a standard format and addressing some specific questions relating to the 5049 Coastal Community are available for your perusal (See links below). If you missed the night or didn’t get to hear from some of your local candidates, these profiles are a great way to learn more about your local candidates prior to voting.
