Sue Bolton was elected to Moreland City Council in north Melbourne in
November 2012 on the platform of "community need not developer greed".

As a member of the Socialist Alliance, Bolton sees it as important to take
up the "bread and butter" issues as well as broader social justice issues.

Bolton does not seek to just represent residents, but encourages residents
to get involved in local community campaigns and feel empowered to take up
issues with the council themselves.

"Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is humanity's
original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion." -- Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man

"The free market is perfectly natural... do you think I am some kind of
dummy?" -- Jarvis Cocker
