Sue Bull has been a So­cial­ist Al­liance can­di­date for all three tiers of gov­ern­ment, in­clud­ing for mayor in the in­au­gu­ral di­rect elec­tion in 2012. Her and Sarah Hath­way are run­ning a ticket for the as­pir­ing po­lit­i­cal party. “I want to see an open, demo­crat­i­cally-elected and ac­count­able coun­cil re­turned to Gee­long. As a res­i­dent for nearly 20 years and a teacher at sev­eral lo­cal high schools, I have seen the city put the needs of de­vel­op­ers and big busi­ness ahead of com­mu­nity needs. We must pri­ori­tise de­vel­op­ing qual­ity coun­cil ser­vices. I am op­posed to rate cap­ping, pri­vati­sa­tion and out­sourc­ing. They don’t work and put too much pres­sure on the dis­ad­van­taged. I will cam­paign to in­crease con­ces­sions on rates and ser­vices for all low in­come earn­ers and de­mand that coun­cil ad­dress job cre­ation, train­ing and home­less­ness. We must start fin­ing land­lords who sit on empty prop­er­ties.”
