Postal ballot 23 April to 6pm 11 May

Melbourne is growing at a rate faster than anytime since the gold rush. That brings exciting opportunities, but plenty of significant challenges. If we want Melbourne to be liveable, sustainable and welcoming to all well into the future, government needs to ensure that Melbourne's development boom is being guided in the public interest, not only the interests of the owners of the biggest development companies.

Only the Greens are standing on a comprehensive policy platform, with a candidate whose track record on transparent and collaborative decision making gives the Melbourne City Council its best chance of stability and productivity this term.

Vote 1 Cr Rohan Leppert for Lord Mayor of Melbourne.

Your vote is your choice, just remember to number all 14 boxes on your ballot paper and post your ballots back by 6pm 11 May to avoid a fine. You may also wish to consider our preference recommendations.

Rohan Leppert is the only candidate with a complete suite of policies covering all of Council's responsibilities and roles. Please consider our comprehensive City of Melbourne policy platform.

Follow Rohan's daily campaign events, announcements and commentary, through our Rohan Leppert for Lord Mayor facebook page.

We refuse to take any donations from developers or the gambling industry. Our campaign is funded solely by donations from individuals. We have voluntarily disclosed our donations.
