The December 2021 local government elections were incredibly tough, but the result ensured the City remains in the hands of our experienced, progressive, Independent and community-led team.
Given Covid-19, the election was delayed twice. As such, we had to maintain our campaign office for longer than expected and reprint materials with the changed date.
Strict social distancing rules also limited what our team of volunteers could do. Our campaign was therefore more reliant on social media advertising, ads in local papers, and mail-outs of campaign information. All of this is much more expensive than our usual volunteer-powered grassroots activities like door knocking.
Every election we compete against the war-chests of the major parties and cashed-up candidates. Our re-election relies on donations from you, our grass-roots supporters, rather than vested interests.
That's why we're leaving this donation page open. If you have a few dollars to spare, it will help us cover administrative costs and ensure we're ready to hit the ground running next campaign.
We know this past few years have been tough for many, and we truly appreciate your generous support.
The City has been transformed since 2004, and that’s because people like you supported our Independent teams to create a more liveable, sustainable and thriving city and villages.
We’ve shown what stable, progressive, Independent Government looks like and how it works.
Together, we can protect that and keep our city thriving.
Please note: In order to maintain the integrity of elections and political processes, you can only make a political donation if you are:
- On an Australian electoral roll
- An Australian business entity with an ABN
As well, NSW legislation prohibits some groups from making political donations. If you belong to any of the groups below, it is illegal for you to donate to Team Clover.
- a property developer (including anyone becoming a property developer within 12 months)
- a tobacco industry business entity
- a liquor or gambling industry business entity
- a close associate of (a), (b) or (c)
- any industry representative organisation if the majority of its members are those listed in (a), (b) or (c).
NSW legislation also imposes the following caps on political donations:
- In the current financial year (1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021), an individual or business entity can donate up to a maximum of $6,600 to a political party.
We cannot accept cash donations of more than $100.
