We are not affiliated with any organisation or individual. The reasons to sack Salim Mehajer are outlined above and have nothing to do with his ethnic background or religion. We condemn Salim Mehajer and his supporters for playing the 'race card' by claiming that calls for his sacking are ethnically/racially or religiously motivated. We also call on supporters of this petition to not to 'race to the bottom' against Salim Mehajer's supporters by replicating such poor behaviour.

We also support Luke Foley's calls for reforms to Local Government in NSW:

  • Section 451 of the Local Government Act to be scrapped. (Section 451 allows Councillors to vote on planning decisions from which they could benefit financially).
  • Ban property developers and real estate agents from being Councillors
  • Capping political donations and campaign spending in council elections
  • Ending the 'horse-trading' for the mayoral position with a popularly elected mayor for the full 4 year term
