Congratulations to Jane Addis, Councillor for Maling Ward

I came third (out of 6 candidates) in the election for Maling Ward with 18% of the primary vote.

Jane Addis (a genuine independent) was elected with a very strong vote. I am
happy that my preferences elected her over one of the two (undeclared) Liberal candidates - Scott Samson and Stephen Spring.

Congratulations Jane.

It is great that Maling Ward has a female Councillor, with another two women (Coral Ross, re-elected & Judith Voce) elected. Boroondara Council now has a better gender balance.

I look forward to the new Council supporting and taking action on improved cycling infrastructure and sustainability and supporting local community groups such as the Friends of South Surrey Park.

Strong leadership is also required to address considerable community concerns about inappropriate development (McMansions & very large multi occupancy dwellings in suburban streets).
