Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : September 10 2008
6 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, September 11, 2008 MB COUNCIL ELECTIONS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Keeping quality of life Canada Bay is famous for its waterfront areas. CANADA BAY COUNCIL residents will go to the polls on Saturday. Here we profile the lead candi- dates on each ticket, in the order they ap- pear on the ballot. All, except Tony Sidoti, are also run- ning for mayor. Tony Sidoti (Ind): Could not be contacted for his profile. Michael Megna (Lib): As mayor of Drummoyne for six years, I have a long and proud history of introducing lifestyle- changing policies in seniors, youth, cultural events, such as Ferragosto, public transport and the environment. I created heri- tage and conservation areas to stop overdevelopment which was adding a burden to our roads and traffic. Jeanette O'Hara (Community First): I feel I can be there for the community and am always avail- able to help with what is within my power. I have been a resident of Concord for 58 years and a councillor for 13 years, three of those as deputy mayor. I enjoy community work and am a mem- ber of various committees and community organisations. Angelo Tsirekas (ALP): I know climate change is one of the most serious challenges facing us and I am committed to leading our local response to tackling it. I believe we can achieve an appropriate balance between new development and heritage conservation with- out compromising the things resi- dents, including myself, know and love. Michael Cantali (Ind): I have many years' experience represent- ing the people on council and have a proven track record of integrity and honesty. I am a chartered professional engineer and have done postgraduate studies in proj- ect management, and as a commit- ted activist I have supported and lobbied for local community bodies and individual residents. Pauline Tyrrell (Greens): I will be a strong community advo- cate who does not take donations from developers. I will act on climate change, support the pro- vision of affordable housing and represent residents in an honest and independent way. I want to see our parks cleaned up, more trees planted and better public trans- port. I was a Canada Bay Greens councillor from 2000 and I was deputy mayor from 2002 to 2004. David Allen (Ind): I stand for economic, social and environ- mental sustainability. Rates should reflect services provided and we can take pride in our Australian heritage. Modern water and sewage management technology is essential. Free pub- lic transport would save billions of trade dollars yearly and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Candidates share house LIBERAL candidate for Burwood Council John Sidoti shares the same address as independent can- didate Anthony John Strik. Residents have asked the Inner- West Weekly to investigate why candidates, especially from differ- ent parties, are living at the same address. Other candidates with different names also share the same ad- dress. ''It's quite simple actually,'' Mr Sidoti said. ''I met Anthony some time ago through a good friend. He is a law student and has a few issues so I offered to put a roof over his head and would have done it even if he was from the Labor Party.'' Mr Strik has been living with Mr Sidoti's family for two months but said it was only temporary. ''At this stage I will live with John until I finish my law degree, which will probably be next year, and I'm very lucky I have the support from John,'' he said. The addresses of candidates, available on the NSW elections website, also show sitting council- lor David Weiley is living with candidate Raffaela Turco, who is running last on his ticket. ''Of course we are living together, she is my mother-in-law and has been living with us for the past 20 years,'' Cr Weiley said. Burwood Greens candidate Christine Donayre also shares the same address as Greens Christopher Tselpi. ''We are husband and wife and we are committed to the same ideas,'' Ms Donayre said.
