Docklanders meet the candidates

Docklanders meet the candidates Image

The Melbourne state by-election came to Docklands on July 10 when 12 of the 16 candidates outlined their policies to the community.

Hosted by the Rotary Club of Docklands and the Docklands Community Association, the session was held at Watermark in place of Rotary’s regular weekly meeting.

Each candidate outlined their policies within a five-minute speech before answering questions from the audience.

About 50 people attended and were welcomed by Rotary Club president Joseph Ebbage.

Mr Ebbage explained that hosting the session was consistent with the club’s philosophy of connecting the Docklands’ community.

Docklands News editor Shane Scanlan chaired and moderated the evening, with most interest from locals being focused on planning matters and the contentious issue of short-stay accommodation within resident towers.

Docklanders directed most of their questions to the two leading candidates Jennifer Kanis from the ALP and Greens candidate Cathy Oke.

Ms Kanis went on to narrowly win the by-election on July 21.
