Lord Mayor hopeful Nic Frances Gilley reveals his five-point plan for Melbourne to Tom Elliott
Nic Frances Gilley is running for Lord Mayor.
And the former priest, who’s also worked in juvenile justice, came armed with a five-point plan for Melbourne when interviewed by Tom Elliott on Friday.
Our Indigenous Culture
- We want our Indigenous culture at the heart of our City: for sake of our Indigenous people, the rest of our citizens, and our visitors.
Every building sustainable now
- We want Melbourne to actually utilise the current environmental policy (Energy Upgrade Agreements) that we do have to create thousands of jobs in this sector, to extend this to domestic households, and to become the world’s leading sustainable city.
Homes, Not Homelessness
- Homelessness has become a significant issue in Melbourne. We plan for immediate short-term solutions and longer-term engagement with all stakeholders to ensure the situation is completely turned around.
A Trade Centre for our Asian Neighbours
- Improving tourism, education, and business opportunities for our Asian neighbours with stronger engagement than we use right now, so our city benefits from the extraordinary growth in this region.
Free Flowing Democracy
- Our campaign is using a deliberative democracy platform to provide an example of how Council can involve all citizens in the decision-making process of council over its whole term.
