Uncertain who to vote for in the State election? On Thursday 16th March the Queen Street and West Woollahra Association, the Double Bay Residents’ Association and the Darling Point Society are combining to hold a forum so residents can meet the four candidates for our electorate (Vaucluse) in the NSW state election. The forum will take place at the Double Bay Bowling Club in Kiaora Road starting at 6.00pm. There is usually parking available in Kiaora Road.
All residents – whether or not a member of one of the associations – will be welcome. There will be a cash bar so residents can socialise with the candidates afterwards. Pre-registration is not required and there will be seating for 120 and standing room after that, so it will pay to get there early.
With the state government now responsible for local planning policy, the election on 25th March will have a major impact on the future of Woollahra – and indeed the whole peninsular from Rushcutters Bay to Watson’s Bay. The state government’s planning policy will affect population density, traffic congestion, public transport and infrastructure (such as schools and recreational facilities). Our lifestyle, and that of future generations, will depend on state government decisions.
The forum on 16th March will enable you to question candidates on their policies that will impact all of us and their commitment to support residents’ interests. We look forward to seeing you there.
Giles Edmonds, President, QSWWA
