Thank you Inner West Voters!

Our Inner West Labor team has received huge support across the Inner West at Saturday’s election. While there are still many votes yet to be counted, we are on track to be the largest group on the next Inner West Council.

We are coming first in 4 of the 5 Wards and have a substantial lead in the overall primary vote.

In the Marrickville, Ashfield and Leichhardt Wards we are a real chance of doubling our representation and having 2 Local Labor Councillors elected in each of those Wards.

We are on track to form a Labor-led Inner West Council, possibly even with an outright majority, something that hasn’t happened in the Inner West for decades.

Importantly, following our successful campaign this year to have Julie Passas disendorsed by the Liberal Party, our team is very pleased that Ms Passas has not been re-elected and will not serve on the next Council.

Thank you so much to all the local people who supported our grassroots campaign. You are the reason we’ve been able to achieve this very positive result.

Yours sincerely,

Darcy Byrne
