Eli Melky standing for mayor and councillor

 

Alderman Eli Melky has announced that he will be standing for mayor and councillor in the March 24 local government elections.

He is in his first term (having been elected in a by-election last March) and part of a minority faction – frequently voting with Aldermen Samih Habib Bitar and Murray Stewart – who are finding it difficult to get support for their motions.

Ald Melky has also had some memorable run-ins with Mayor Damien Ryan.

In his media release he paints a bleak picture of the state of Alice Springs, besieged by "out of control youth", with businesses "closing at an alarming rate".

He says a bedtime curfew for youth under 16 is needed now more than ever.

His other policies include council taking "a proactive approach to the Melanka site" and open slather on liquor trade.
