Local Election 4th December: We Quizzed The Candidates From 4 Electorates To Help You Vote

posted in: Life | 0

The upcoming Local Government Election is happening on Saturday 4th December 2021. The elections are administered by the NSW Electoral Commission and voting is compulsory.

We wanted to find out a bit more about the candidates who will be representing us in the years to come. At the links below, you will find answers to set questions that we sent to candidates.

It’s important to note that RDMs are not aligned with any party or candidate, the responses have been provided by the candidates themselves and their participation was voluntary.

If you click on a ward below that is of interest to you, all parties who completed our questions will be in a blue hyperlink you can click on. If there name remains black, it is because they did not reply to our email or did not have contact details on NSW Election website.
