RESIDENTS PETITION FOR CENTRAL COAST COUNCIL ELECTION TO BE HELD SOONER
Member for The Entrance, David Mehan, threw his support behind the NSW Legislative Assembly ePetition, calling for a review into the announcement by the State Government that Central Coast Council elections won’t be held until the
14 September 2024.
Local resident, Mr Gregory Knott, wants the election to be held sooner and has initiated the ePetition which has attracted 448 signatures to date. This petition will be open for signature until 19 December 2022.
“The Central Coast deserves its elected voice,” Mr Knott said.
The premise behind the petition is that the announced date “will leave Central Coast residents without a voice for almost 4 years and no local democracy. Currently Central Coast residents have no input into local issues. The Central Coast is in a state of disrepair with dangerous pot holes on major roads, local parks overgrown, vandalised and some closed for extended periods.”
"Residents of the Central Coast deserve a say on this issue,” Mr Mehan said.
“I commend Mr Knott for taking this initiative and being the voice for others on the Central Coast. I encourage everyone to have their say on this issue.”
“Should 20,000 sign the ePetition https://www.parliament.nsw.gov.au/la/Pages/ePetition-details.aspx?q=eUCCSc1e_O7_mCsLVbV4JQ a special debate occurs in State Parliament.”
