Big bat­tle for Brown­bill

Geelong Advertiser - - NEWS -

THE cen­tral Gee­long Brown­bill Ward is the most com­pet­i­tive of the four coun­cil elec­tions.

With a large field of 18 can­di­dates, there is no short­age of choice for vot­ers who live in an area from North Gee­long, through the CBD and out to Whit­ting­ton and St Al­bans Park.

There are two sacked coun­cil­lors (Eddy Kon­telj and Peter Mur­rihy), a for­mer Bendigo mayor (Alec Sand­ner) and for­mer coun­cil­lor (Michael King). The big­gest ar­ray of pro­gres­sive and left-lean­ing can­di­dates are also found in Brown­bill.

The Greens (Sarah Mans­field), So­cial­ist Al­liance (Sue Bull, Sarah Hath­way) and An­i­mal Jus­tice Party (Jacki Jacka andJen­nifer Gam­ble) have en­dorsed rep­re­sen­ta­tives. It looms as a tight poll. Voter bal­lot packs have been mailed out, with vot­ing to close on Oc­to­ber 27.
