Judy Vergison, Events Coordinator, Bulletin 5/2021 July 2021 – Updated    

The Glebe Society will host a Meet the 2021 City of Sydney Council Election Lord Mayoral Candidates Forum at the Harold Park Community Hall, Tramsheds.

Six candidates have accepted our invitation:

  • Sylvie Ellsmore (Greens)
  • Shauna Jarrett (Liberal)
  • Clover Moore (Independent)
  • Linda Scott (Labor)
  • Angela Vithoulkas (The Small Business Party)
  • Yvonne Weldon (Independent)

When:  POSTPONED – Local Government elections are now scheduled for December. New date for Forum to be advised.

Where: Harold Park Community Hall, Tramsheds, 1 Dalgal Pl, Forest Lodge

Cost: Free but bookings are essential 

Hear what the candidates have to say before the upcoming local government elections. 

  • What’s their vision for Sydney over the next four years and beyond?
  • What will they commit to do to address the major issues facing Glebe?
  • How will they fix the local issues that are important to you?

Allan Hogan will again be our moderator. Those who saw Allan in action at the Meet the Candidates forums hosted by the Society the last Federal and State elections will recall how well he brings his ‘big end of town’ journalism skills to these community forums – a great facilitator gives everyone a fair go and, importantly, asks the challenging questions.

Candidates will give a short overview and respond to questions from the moderator on the Glebe Society’s strategic issues. The audience will then have the opportunity to ask questions from the floor.

You are invited to submit topics to be covered and questions you would like raised by the Glebe Society. Please send your ideas to events@glebesociety.org.au.

Watch out for more details of each candidate and their key platforms in the Society’s regular Member Update email and in the next Bulletin.

This FREE event is open to members and all Glebe/Forest Lodge residents and business owners. Bookings on Eventbrite are essential: Book now to avoid missing out! Feel free to share with locals in your network.

Under COVID-19 Safety Rules we anticipate that a maximum of 200 people will be able to attend. The COVID situation will be monitored and arrangements put in place to meet any new requirements.
