Various Possibilities

During the months ahead, the Australian Political Reform Club will continue to investigate various possibilities, many of which relate to local government in Australia.


What have been your experiences of local governance?

Does the future of your local district appear to be one of certainty or uncertainty?

How are accessibility and inclusion expressed in your local area?

What is the political influence in your area of surrounding areas?

What is the political influence in your area of areas further away?

What would improve accessibility and inclusion in your area?

What would improve accountability in your area?

Who and what should be excluded from your area, and why?

What do you believe to be a sufficiently long term of office for political representatives in your local government area, and why?

What are your opinions about the boundaries of your local government area?

What are your opinions about other political and administrative boundaries in Australia, including state boundaries?

What changes would you make to the governance of your local area, if given the opportunity to do so, and why?

What changes would you make to state and/or territory political and electoral processes, and why?

What changes would you make to federal processes, and why?

If you were involved in developing a training course for prospective political candidates, at any level of government, what would you include in the course, and why?

What other changes would you make to Australia's governance, if given the chance, and why?

Have you ever thought about whether Australia would benefit from having a symbolic, incorporated body as a group head of state rather than an individual one?

Do you think heads of state, and members of parliaments and local government bodies, should always behave as custodians?

Are you some sort of patron and/or custodian?
