It’s election time again

Brisbane City Council elections next month

It’s been four years since the last council elections and so we’re due for the next round in just over three weeks. Quite a lot has changed since then – particularly in the Wynnum and Bayside area.

WynnumCentral is planning to interview all candidates in the runup to the election, so if yo have any burning questions you’d like us to ask them, please send your questions through to us, along with your name (first and last) via email to [email protected].

Take our quick survey (this survey is now closed)

We have also put together a very short – and totally anonymous – survey for anyone who will be voting in the Wynnum/Manly ward this time around. It’s a quick survey where we ask…

  • Which party candidate you voted for in the last elections (even if you were living in a different part of Brisbane)
  • Which candidate in the Wynnum/Manly ward you’d vote for if the election was on tomorrow (and which Mayoral candidate)
  • Your age bracket/gender (you can opt not to tell us your gender)
  • What you think is the most important issue of this election

We are also looking at the possibility of a short 1 hour (free) ‘open’ evening meeting where you can get to meet all the candidates and ask them your (presubmitted) questions – a bit like Q&A. In the survey we ask if you would be interested in coming along to an event like this.
