I was going to preview the other wards in Saturday's Marrickville Council elections. West Ward is pretty boring, as is South Ward, where Maroubra resident Morris Hanna will be among those seeking re-election. It's likely that each of South, West and Central Wards will shape up as Greens 1, Labor 1, independent 1. The question will be which independent, certainly in Central Ward.
Not one but two Youtube videos this time, produced by the NSW Greens and dealing with the proposed expansion of the port facilities in Botany Bay, which if it goes ahead will be an environmental disaster for the bay, and create major road transport issues throughout most of the south and south-west of the Sydney metropolitan area.
The first video is a two-minute overview of the Port Botany situation, and the second features a public meeting/media call by the Greens candidates for Marrickville (Fiona Byrne) and Maroubra (Anne Gardiner) on the Botany Bay foreshore.
