Congratulations to Clover Moore and her team on her election for an unprecedented fifth term as Lord Mayor of Sydney.
The low vote count means the council make-up is not yet clear. Details > HERE. I’m excited to continue to work with Clover for our progressive, independent, and community-led city.
In Parliament I put on record my thanks for former councillors Philip Thalis > HERE and Jess Miller > HERE for their work representing residents and working for a progressive, sustainable and corruption-free city.
Congratulations also to Harriet Price and Luise Elsing on re-election to Woollahra Council. Details from Antony Green at the ABC > HERE.
I’ve heard criticism from voters about the iVote website crashing, long queues at some polling places and no voting at Town Hall, with many people struggling to be able to vote. I’m concerned that the Electoral Commission response to COVID restrictions made it hard for people to vote and will be raising this with the government.
