Strip council functions
As a constitutionalist I pursue a return to our constitutional values and the stripping of municipal councils of their de facto government functions to let them return to their real job which is to represent the ratepayers’ interests.
It should be a voice of the ratepayers and not act opposite to it.
Those who invested their monies into residential properties should be heard and their united voice should be listened to.
State governments are there to govern for the whole of the state and municipal councils should represent the ratepayers’ interests. That is not eventuating and because of this so many problems have already arisen and more will because of the vacuum of representation.
As an independent candidate I will pursue a return to our constitutional values for the ratepayers. Your vote will be crucial as if you vote for a political party you may vote for more of the same, whereas if you vote 1 Schorel-Hlavka you may finally elect a representative to the State Parliament who will seek a return of values including appropriate representation for Docklands residents and businesses alike.
Gerrit H. Schorel-Hlavka
Independent candidate for the Melbourne District by-election
