With the 2022 Federal election rapidly approaching, Council has been active in its advocacy on our community’s behalf.
There are three federal electorates (Jagajaga, McEwen, Menzies) which overlap within Nillumbik Shire’s boundaries and we are keeping a close eye on election commitments that would have a direct impact on Council and our community.
We will continue to advocate to whoever aspires to government, regardless of political persuasion in our Community’s best interests.
