Steve Filipovic has run twice in Victoria, once for Mayor as a green-aligned independent, and in the recent by-election, where he came in third with 2280 votes, or about half of the winning candidate's 4529.
While he hasn't publicly announced, Victoria Votes was assured that he intends to run this year. "I am running for City Council," said Filipovic in his statement to VV, "to steer the City into creating affordable housing opportunities for Victorians, to implement viable and cost saving solutions for housing those without homes, to get our City on track to reducing our use of fossil fuels and pesticides, and to transition our City toward Local and Organic."
Filipovic began campaigning with an event on Thursday Aug. 4th entitled "Challenge the Establishment Strategy Meeting".
