Make a submission to the VEC for 3 x 3 councillor wards

The Victorian Electoral Commission has released its preliminary report on the number of councillors and the ward structures for Moonee Valley. You can find the report on the VEC website: vec.vic.gov.au

The VEC has recommended that MVCC have 9 coucillors - 3 councillors from each of 3 wards.

I believe this recommendation will serve Moonee Valley residents well. I made a preliminary submission to the VEC that sets out reasons for this view. My submission is available on the VEC website.

The VEC is asking for response submissions to its recommendation: the final deicison depends on how the community responds.

You need to make a response by 22 April 2008. You can read the report, preliminary submissions - and then make your comments known to the VEC. Have a voice. Be heard.
