2020 Bayside Council Election - Responses to Candidate Questionnaire

We sent a questionnaire to every candidate for the 2020 Bayside Council election who provided contact details to the Victorian Electoral Commission (61 out of 66). We asked about issues we think are important for our community. It is not our intention to dictate to anyone how they should vote in the Council election, and we will not be endorsing any candidates. Rather, we want you to be well informed when you exercise your vote.

The Little Wattlebird

Little Wattlebirds are the first to wake and last to roost in our neighbourhood. Their unique range of calls are varied, loud and constant, with some of the stranger, harsh grating noises very unbirdlike. A Japanese visitor enquired about the strange noisy animals that woke him on his first morning in Australia. Upon being shown a Little Wattlebird in full voice he could not believe a bird, especially one that small, was responsible.
