Council Meetings

Election 2020-2024 and our Ward Councillors | Nicholls & Langridge

Elections do matter! It is crucial for us to engage with candidates and vote at local Council elections so that residents get the representation they need.

A Virtual Town Hall ‘Meet the Candidates’ hosted by Rod Quantock took place in 2020 on the 29th, 30th of September and 1st October where candidates answered your questions. These events were held in partnership with the FRA and Yarra Residents Collective and recorded live each evening. Please see the below links to each ward’s recorded video via YouTube. (If you need a reminder as to which ward you reside in, see the Yarra City Council website here under ‘Our Wards’)
