Dear Peaceful Baysiders,
I have greatly appreciated your support during the first half of my first term as your councillor for Bayside. I am very proud of what - together - we have achieved in pushing for safer streets, better-managed green spaces and more liveable and inclusive neighbourhoods. I know we have already made a real difference on Council.
But it is going to take two terms in council for me to ensure the motions I have had passed are implemented - like jet ski monitoring, getting noise cameras for Bayside, gardening initiatives like Gardens for Wildlife (for volunteer helpers for elderly gardeners), better active transport routes, and safe routes to schools, etc.
So, with support from many Bayside locals, in 2023 we have set up the Peaceful Bayside political party.
Creating a Peaceful Bayside political party together means Peaceful Bayside will appear above the line on the ballot paper at the September 2024 election.
This makes it easier for people to vote for us. It is especially important for the growing number of postal voters, and online voters, who don’t have the how to vote cards that are handed out at polling booths. Peaceful Bayside candidates didn’t get many online or postal votes last election, and so forming a party will really help this. It’s so much easier for people to work out how to vote if they see the party name above the line!
HERE’S HOW TO JOIN
1) Please fill out the Declaration of party membership form.
The NSW Electoral Commission checks the details of every member, any difference, however small or seemingly insignificant, will mean your form will be rejected.
The party name is simply Peaceful Bayside.
Via computer: you can use a digital signature and email it to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: you must use your own personal electronic signature and not a generic one.
2) Please ask your friends, family and neighbours to join the Peaceful Bayside party too!
Email me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Thanks for you time and support - together with your care, we are making Bayside better.
