Congratulations to Lizzie Blandthorn and Tim Read being elected to #springst

The Victorian state election is over and two of Moreland’s state MP’s signed the climate emergency declaration during the campaign: Labor’s Lizzie Blandthorn in Pascoe Vale, and the Greens Tim Read in Brunswick.

The first important step for our elected representatives is to acknowledge the problem, that we have a climate crisis, a climate emergency, that requires a level of emergency climate planning and action.

We are glad and congratulate that two of our three Legislative Assembly representatives have acknowledged the problem and in the coming four years expect they will act in their respective parties and in parliament to ramp up climate action consistent with climate science and climate targets. The citizens of Moreland expect nothing less.

Vote Climate in the Victorian state election 2018

Our index page for the Victorian state election in 2018 and our campaign on climate change and climate action. Climate Action Moreland campaigns on climate issues for the state electorates of Brunswick, Pascoe Vale and Broadmeadows, and the Northern Metro Region (Upper House).

Update Note: 29 November: Brunswick count continuing with the Greens candidate Tim Read 350 votes ahead of Labor’s Cindy O’Connor. Pascoe Vale count continuing with sitting MP Labor’s Lizzie Blandthorn likely to be easily returned on preferences. Pascoe Vale was previously a safe Labor seat.

In the Upper House it is likely the Greens will be reduced from 5 MLCs to just 1 MLC (Samantha Ratnam), due to the tight preferencing of minor parties using group voting tickets. The Counting is continuing for the Legislative Council.

Victorian Energy Minister Lily D’Ambrosio signs climate emergency declaration

Lily D’Ambrosio MP for Mill Park, Minister for Energy

The Victorian Minister for Energy signed on to the climate emergency declaration.

At the Brunswick prepoll station for the Victorian election the Energy Minister Lily D’Ambrosio was handing out How to Vote cards for Brunswick Labor Candidate Cindy O’Connor.

As Cindy has already signed the climate emergency declaration, I asked Ms D’Ambrosio if she would consider signing the declaration. After a short period considering the request, she accepted and signed the declaration.
