Local Government Democracy Reform

A gerrymander in the CoM delivers businesses two votes while residents have one. CoRBA has waged a decade long struggle to address this injustice.

In 2014, the Baillieu/Napthine Government finally undertook a review of electoral processes for local government elections- including the CoM.  This was a major and momentous victory for CoRBA. This document, the Georgiou Review, recommended many necessary reforms and released, regrettably, just before the caretaker period. CoRBA intends to pursue implementation of this review with the new State Government Minister for Local Government Natalie Hutchins and through local member Ellen Sandell.
