Voices of Mornington Peninsula (VMP) is a not-for-profit organisation driven by dedicated locals. VMP believes in the power of residents to effect positive change within our political system.
Our aim is to represent your voice at all levels of government and to ensure that our elected candidates respond to the wishes of our community, rather than adhering to the political party line.
VMP is committed to supporting an outstanding independent candidate who will represent with integrity the values of residents in the Flinders electorate. Better democracy leads to better policy and a better future.
The issues that matter to you, matter to us and are fundamental to establishing what will make our future promising and secure. So, VMP invites residents to tell us what is important to them. The information we receive is collated and the final report will provide an overview of collective values and visions for the future. The elected candidate will be expected to represent these ideals in Parliament.
To let us know what you think, you can either:
- catch up with other locals at a ‘kitchen table conversation’ or host one yourself (we provide all the information and assistance you need)
- complete our online survey
- come along to one of our community events
We know that communities have the best outcomes when their elected representative is truly connected and engaged with the electorate they serve. VMP will carry out a rigorous selection process to determine a shortlist of the best independent candidates. The final choice will be made by VMP members and endorsed by the VMP Board.
VMP is currently seeking applications for the next election from locals who have what it takes to meaningfully act for the residents of the Flinders electorate. Someone who will hold community values at the heart of everything they do.
Together, we are powerful.
