There are a few things I would be pushing for on the Inner West Council:

  • Improving public transport and active transport options around the Inner West
  • Making sure development is done right
  • Keeping green space, sports facilities , libraries, childcare and a vibrant and safe nightlife
  • Opposing WestConnex and Privatisation and making sure all planning decisions are transparent
  • Doing everything we can at a community level to care for the planet
  • Promoting sustainable business practices which help small businesses reduce costs

    Young Independent for Marrickville

    Young Independent, Victoria Pye, launches campaign for Marrickville

    Victoria Pye, 29, will officially launch her campaign to be a councillor for Marrickville on Tuesday 25 July, offering a fresh and determined focus to the changing demographic.

    Victoria is aiming to be one of three councillors elected by residents to represent Marrickville on the newly formed Inner West Council. As an Independent, Victoria says her sole focus will be on representing the people of Marrickville, St Peters, Sydenham and Tempe without getting caught up in party politics.

    Who am I and what am I about? (Tôi là ai?)

     Victoria Pye - Marrickville Independent

    Who am I, why do I want to be an independent councillor in the Inner West Local council and what do I believe in? 

    Tôi là ai, tại sao tôi lại muốn trở thành ủy viên độc lập tại hội đồng thành phố Inner West và tôi tin tưởng vào điều gì?

    I’m a 29-year-old Marrickville local. I’ve lived in Marrickville for 5 years and the Inner West for 8 years.  Both my parents grew up in the Inner West, my dad lived on Riverside Crescent in Marrickville and used to go swimming in Cooks River (seems really gross now!). They moved to the Central Coast to raise a family and that’s where I grew up. I commuted from Terrigal to Sydney University to complete my degree, and once I finished and got a job I moved into an apartment in Dulwich Hill with friends. In between then and now I’ve moved to Marrickville, completed a Master’s degree in statistics and developed a keen interest in democracy and independent politics.
