Mullum, Mullum Ward: Paul McLeish
My family and I have loved living in Donvale for over 10 years. I have senior business management experience through my long IT/finance career, overseeing large national budgets, teams and projects.
In our local community, I helped lead opposition to the Dome Monastery development, defeating developer and Council at VCAT. Attending most 2012 Council meetings, I began the successful fight against rates on 4652 unsewered Manningham homes. I will defend the sanctity of the Green Wedge by resisting inappropriate development.
Councillors must represent and support their community!
Development planning must be more sympathetic to our communities environment; too often it’s entirely financially driven.
We must support our growing sporting clubs by developing new netball and basketball facilities in Mullum Mullum. Over 4 years Council increased rates 21% and waste charges 35%, with another 5% annually until 2022. Isn’t $78M PA enough? I will act to stop relentless rate rises!
