Voting cards for the 2020 Warrnambool City Council election will arrive in mail boxes from tomorrow (Tuesday 6 October).

Below are the “how to vote” preference lists for all Warrnambool City Council election candidates.

Some candidates have not compiled a formal card, but still offered suggestions. These are also included at the end.

You don’t have to follow these preference lists and your vote will still count, but they are a handy guide if you want to follow a particular candidate and their recommendations.

If you want a sense of who a candidate would like to see on the next council, look at the top seven people listed on their card. If you agree with them, follow their card. If you don’t agree, then don’t follow the card.

The main thing is to number the candidates YOU would like to see on council in order of priority, from number 1 (your first choice) right through to number 24 (your last choice).

With only seven vacancies and a whopping 24 candidates, including 19 new faces, the heat is on to secure a spot.

Make your vote count by filling out all 24 boxes on the ballot paper when it arrives in the mail and posting it back straight away: don’t leave it on the fridge!

BRUCE CAMPBELL

Q: Preferences will decide who is elected to the council. Are you planning to preference most highly new candidates, exisiting candidates or you won’t be putting forward preferences:

A: I am planning to preference new candidates most highly.*

*Bruce did not produce a preference list.


LYNN HUDSON

Q: Preferences will decide who is elected to council. Are you planning to preference most highly new candidates, current councillors, or you will not be listing your preferences

A: Obviously I hope to be the first preference for voters.  I don’t intend to dictate where voters should place their next choices.  That said, I honestly hope voters seriously consider the range of hugely talented new candidates.


RICHARD ZIEGELER

Q: Preferences will decide who is elected to the council. Are you planning to preference most highly new candidates, exisiting candidates or you won’t be putting forward preferences:

A: New candidates.*

* Richard later highlighted Angie Paspaliaris-Pye, Jim Burke, Vicki Jellie, Debbie Arnott, Ben Blain, Othaji Akoch and Matthew Walsh. In no particular order.


MICHAEL McCLUSKEY

Q: Preferences will decide who is elected to council. Are you planning to preference most highly new candidates, exisiting candidates or you won’t be putting forward preferences:

A: I don’t do preferences as I prefer to see the voters choose who they want to represent them rather than be dictated to by me. A key question to ask is the ‘horse trading’ that goes on in preference deals about putting the community first, or the candidate?


MAX TAYLOR

Q: Preferences will decide who is elected to council. Are you planning to preference most highly new candidates, current councillors, or you will not be listing your preferences

A: I am not providing any preferences at all to anyone and stand to be elected on my business background and experience.


PETER SYCOPOULIS

No preferences.


ANDREW SQUIRES

Q: Preferences will decide who is elected to council. Are you planning to preference most highly new candidates, current councillors, or you will not be listing your preferences

A: If I do list preferences, I would list new candidates as to give others the chance to represent the community with new and fresh ideas.


ANTHONY EARNSHAW

Q: Preferences will decide who is elected to council. Are you planning to preference most highly new candidates, current councillors, or you will not be listing your preferences

A:I will not be listing preferences. Preferential voting should be abolished.

    1. Hi Paul,
      I operate differently and wanted to demonstrate that it’s not all about myself. Purely an act of selflessness.
      Thanks for noticing.
