Elli has been known to me since he attended the Maylands Ratepayers and Residents Association (MRRA) several years ago. He has continued to regularly attend meetings and has shown not only interest in our local community but an ability to take action to highlight the community’s concerns to the City of Bayswater council and the local media. He is now and has been for the past year the President of the Maylands Ratepayers and Residents Assn. I have no hesitation in recommending Elli.

I have known Elli for a few years now. I have found him to be conscientious and thorough in his work for the MRRA. He is concerned about the Maylands community and cares for the suburb he calls home. It’s a pleasure to know him.

You would be a fantastic addition to the City of Bayswater!

Dedicated, professional, across what the community need and want, and passionate about the area we live and work. Best news I’ve heard! You have my full support Elli – including my personal and professional recommendation.

In particular, you put in so much work to keep the Maylands Waterpark open and get it the funding it should have been allocated to begin with by the City of Bayswater to maintain and upgrade it. Months and months of time and effort put into it behind the scenes by yourself. You did a really good job advocating for the ratepayers and making sure our voice was heard.

No politics, no ego, no playing games – diligent hard work and facts and what was in the best interests of the community – the way it should be. You did a good job – thank you for your efforts – noticed and appreciated.

Well done Elli for stepping up to this important role. I’ve met you a few times and you come across as professional and caring with no business self-interest. A good balance to some of the other councillors. You have my vote.

As a tree lover of standing, BUTN supports your candidacy for South Ward. I know your credentials via attendance at Council over a number of years. Good luck, the Ward and all the city need tree loving councillors!

I shared an office with Elli for the best part of a year. He is truly a hard worker and intelligent guy. Now he could be my local councillor! Coming from Melbourne to live in Maylands, I am most impressed with how he has embraced the local community and fought for improvements. I think he is a man of reason and would listen to every point of view, representing Maylands as a whole in local government. Get to know him!
