Our Candidates

Sue Bolton

North-east Ward

Since being elected as a councilor in 2012, I have seen my role as helping the community campaign for their rights. I supported the campaign to save the Gandolfo Gardens trees and am campaigning for duplication of the Upfield Line. Previously, I have been a bus driver, a public servant and an active trade unionist. I am a Socialist Alliance member.

Meghan Street​

North-east Ward

As a renter and long-time Moreland resident, I have first-hand experience of the issues renters face in gentrifying suburban areas. I am fighting to save our precious green spaces and other publicly owned resources. I am a Socialist Alliance member.

Pauline Galvin

South Ward

I’ve lived in Moreland for more than 25 years and raised my family here. My background is in public health research so I am concerned about climate change. I have been involved in local community campaigns around public transport and climate for 10 years. I am a Community Independent.

Jacob Andrewartha

South Ward

I am a childcare worker and have been involved in grassroots campaigns for Climate Justice and public housing and against racism. I am a Socialist Alliance member.

Monica Harte

North-West Ward

I am a housing worker and a unionist. A landmark campaign I was involved in was to stop the closure of the Upfield Line. The line was saved by the community and unions coming together. A well-organised community is one that can’t be pushed around by governments and corporations. I am a Community Independent.
