Good Lord

Listen to Good Lord

What does it mean to be Lord Mayor of one of the world’s most liveable cities? And how can we keep that ‘liveable’ status – and the relaxed lifestyle we enjoy – in the face of pressures like a booming population, an upwards-shooting skyline, traffic congestion and crime?

As the Melbourne City Council elections loom, Sally Warhaft will host a robust meet-and-greet with the candidates for the mayoral robes, including incumbent Robert Doyle, Liberal candidates Gary Morgan and Gary Singer, and Keith Rankin, Alison Parkes, David Nolte, Joseph Toscano and Brian Shanahan.

They’ll share their big ideas for Melbourne’s future and take your questions on how they’ll tackle the challenges that lie ahead.
