On October 23, the communities in the Shire of South Gippsland have the opportunity to put in place councillors you believe will give a good representation of your needs.
It is very important for you to exercise your democratic right.

In the coming weeks, you will read in various forms of media communication what each candidate has to offer – read this communication, don’t disregard it.

Have a look, take it in what is said, then place your vote.

It is very easy to just go down the line on the voting card and place your numbers from one to 10; you may not get your preferred candidate this way.

The numbers 1 to 10 must be in the order in which you prefer; remember, you cannot complain about the outcome if you do not fully exercise your democratic right.

Leslie Harmer, candidate for Tarwin Valley Ward, Mirboo North.
