Macedon Ranges Shire Council Election – 24th October 2020

Make Your Vote Count

Vote for more local jobs and business support

The Victorian state government is committed to provincial growth, so instead of sticking your head in the sand, use the 24th October election to vote for smart councilors that embrace the future and respect our local values.

You Deserve a Council that Embraces the Future!

Imagine a thoughtful, progressive council that:

  • Pro-actively generates local jobs so you and your family don’t have to commute
  • Can turn around permits in weeks not months (like other councils)
  • Has a clear vision for local tourism that has a positive impact on a wide range of local businesses

Use your vote on 24th October to elect a forward-looking council focused on job creation, support of local businesses and caring for all residents.

A Clear Decision

The Macedon Ranges deserves councilors who believe in innovative, courageous decision making balanced on best practice for sustainable growth. 

So, you have a clear decision to make:

Vote for councilors who will deliver more of the same as you have experienced over the past 4 years – frustration, delays, low investment, and no growth.


Vote for real, down-to-earth people that care about you, your family, and the Macedon Ranges region and want to embrace the potential of our unique district to provide jobs, infrastructure, sustainable growth, and a better future.

Enough is Enough!

There are various local groups who are talking about stopping urban sprawl, the (unverified) negative impacts of residential and commercial development, how tourists damage the environment and the importance of “standing up for Macedon Ranges’ environment and heritage”.

What does this mean?  It means that the loud voices of a small group of lobbyists influence council decisions resulting in:

  • No Vision for the Macedon Ranges region = fewer residents, businesses, and tourists
  • Limited or no local jobs = you can’t work where you live
  • Limited or no support for local businesses = no jobs or support services
  • Little or no tourism support = fewer visitors and lower revenue
  • Limited infrastructure investment = limited community connections
  • Extra delays and costs in processing planning and building approvals = frustration

Enough is enough! 

Don’t be fooled by the loud minority when it comes to council elections – vote for candidates that will support you and your family. Vote for investment, jobs, sustainable growth, and a better future.
