Have nfi who got into our council - it's no longer local and very few activities benefit us in this area these days, unless you're a housing developer or a school.

which council are you in Jayne?
The results are available on the Victorian Electroal Commission website. But of course it does not tell you who they are in relation the mountains of junk mail that was sent out.

If it was like my ward, they are likely to be labour cronies who go in as blocks to give each other preferences so that at least one of them gets in.

It's good Mohammed got a few votes; we need Greens here in Cazaly ward. It's also pleasing to see Antoine Karam - whose stupidity is incapable of being expressed in words - sink further lower in the popularity stakes.

Labor I don't like: they're too dominant. And useless too.

RVB - I see one green candidate got in Rucker Ward (me thinks). I think it would have been interesting for a green to get in. At least there may have been a different slant on the council.
