  1. G’day Gayle, hopefully the meeting went well and the objections were heeded. As it happens, the Finch St plan – perhaps that was on your list – is totally objectionable, particularly to the residents of 4 and 5 Trent Court. If you wish the owners to contact you please reply with your contact details and I will take it from there.

    All the best with your election plan. Cheers John


    1. Hi John,
      I have withdrawn from EM&U for the period of my candidacy for Glen Waverley Ward in Monash. EM&U does not have a mandate to support a candidate as a group and I could forsee how difficult it would become to identify election materials which need to be authorised and so on. The Trent Court address is in Mulgrave Ward so I suggest you contact a candidate there. You can find me on my election web site ( or Facebook (@Gayle4Monash).
