Local council elections are coming up in just a few weeks, on March 19. The Enoggera Ward is part of Brisbane City Council, encompassing many of the North Western Suburbs. At 14%, it’s a very safe LNP seat.
This election, there are three candidates running for the ward, LNP incumbent Andrew Wines; ALP candidate Amanda Ronan-Hearn; and Greens candidate Kirsty Ksiazek.
I spoke to Amanda, and Greens Lord Mayoral candidate Ben Pennings, who stood in for Kirsty, about what they’re running for, and how they’re different. Councillor Andrew Wines was contacted, but was unavailable for interview.
