Voices of Kooyong – Council Elections forum

Sun 19 May 2024, 6:30pm to 11pm, Elgin Inn, 75 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn

The Victorian local government elections are due to be held in October this year. This is the time we get to decide who will be our local representative for the next 4 years.

Voices of Kooyong is holding this forum to interest independent, community minded people in nominating for election in October.  They want to encourage candidates with a desire to bring about social change and improve the integrity of governance at the local government level.  The forum will talk about what is involved in the campaigns, hear from three local councillors about what it means to be a councillor, and outline what is important to you this council election.

Entry is free. Get your tickets here.
