About Me, DUH!

 If you have had enough of the current council, its abuses and the abuse of the officers than you must vote for me as I am the un-establishment candidate.

I understand The Local Government Act of 1989 and cannot be intimidated by TheCEO and /or TheOfficers.


  • No rate increases (I have a plan)
  • Debt Reduction (I have a plan)
  • No automatic contract renewal for the CEO.
  • No automatic bonuses for officers without performance objectives met. Measurable performance indicators.
  • I will work to bring officer salaries into line (down) with other bureaucrats,
  • The ratepayer will be #1: FULL STOP,
  • the protection and retention fo the Mornington Peninsula way of life.
  • Insure that tourists pay their fair share of costs to the tune of $5 million (conservative estimate..I have a plan).
  • Increased pension rate rebates for seniors and those in need.
  • Increase number of tip tickets and add hard waste pickups (twice a year) at no additional cost to ratepayers
  • To hold quarterly Ward Meetings where everyone can have their say
  • To set up Working Ratepayer Consultation Groups to solve Ratepayer Problems rather than bureaucrats who have little “feeling” for the real problem.
  • To improve Public Transport on the peninsula by encouraging the many groups working independently on the issue to band into a cohesive force to “fix” this atrocious problem.

I will report quarterly how i am doing against these criteria during my quarterly ward meetings.

    It’s about time we were called radicals, yes we are exposed. Yes we want to change the current council it’s called a “democratic election”. Ratepayers will finally get to see healty robust debate before decisions are made. If Joe Bloggs is afraid because of us radicals will hunt Joe Bloggs down, he/she is in a fantasy world. Anyway I would never join a group that would have me as a member- Groucho Marx

    Joe have you told the community that you will slug the visitors and tourists who come every year to the peninsula
    You and your activist fringe cronies don’t realize that the peninsula is not yours..it belongs to all victorians and indeed australians
    If you had your way you would erect a wall and prevent them from coming…. It’s a view amongst some people who can’t wait for the summer influx to go home…yours too isn’t it..

    So does pittock, Rodgers and the other 9 stooges in sea winds ward

    Your blatant attempt to manipulate the election is very obvious , provable and if successful CHALLENGEABLE.

      to my Simulacrum friend: “I’m dismissive of any person who lives his life like a frog down a well – all it knows is that well, and those walls, with no interest in what lies outside. I’m trying to make you think, Sasha. That’s all I’ve ever tried to do. That’s all the Nasi-Keth as a whole have ever tried to do. To make people think before they commit to some terrible evil in the name of their various truths, if it is at all possible that they might be wrong.”

      i have only had two complaints to vec so far and they are on to the inspectorate so you all have put the wheels in motion. i am dissapointe…thought there would have been at least 20 by now.

    Ok James, vote for Joe then… Go ahead.
    As one of the very few that even look at this site, and an obvious crony, your opinion will be viewed as such

    Its purely out of fear that I act anonymously . You would give a radical activist group like yours the opportunity to attack with an irrational agenda.

    Yes, you, lenzo and the minority you represent are dangerous to the community and its future. I don’t think I’m a coward, but practical

    Your distortions, lies and agendas will all be exposed in time.

      my agenda is quite simple: unelect six sycophants of the CEO

      All of my “lies” will stand up in court as they have all been substantiated like all good journalists do.

    Good On you Joe Lenzo, I have to say that the coward who wrote the replies would have to be on of those whom many candidates oppose. As far as any group I personally did not know many of the other candidates but we all put Gibb & Celi last. It says a lot. Keep punching Joe.

    Sorry, I cannot vote for a canditate whom does not outline in his electoral champaign the only thing that separates him from those he seeks to remove from office, ie your “plan”. Your plan allows you to increase services, ie discounting pensioner rates (good move on the grey vote buy the way), increasing rubbish pickup (who has that much rubbish??), without increasing rates. Is your “plan” to remove many other services that are not valued by you but are valued by some? Or are you hoping that by removing the CEO and hiring another refill for the position you’ll make the savings needed? Reducing remuneration will not result in a better council, you’ll just lose the experienced officers you already have and the people you hire will be of lesser quality/experience.

    please post your plan

      the biggest part of my plan for no rate increases is to collect 5 million dollars per year from the tourists who ravage our peninsula then leave us to clean up after them and pay for it in our rates. my calculations put this at 5 million per year at least that we can add to shire income to offset our rates.

      another huge cost is consultant fees for studies that never take place. this needs to be controlled as do legal expenses that theCEO creates running to his legal advisers (one of the most expensive in the state) to intimidate Councillors with actions he cannot take in the first place. these costs are running rampant and at the will of the officers.

      need very Little adjustment to services but some are wasted. the million dollar drain from Hastings pool that is correctable but thesix and theCEO will consider no alternatives. after several years ratepayers got the “pelican Pantry” situation resolved which has added over 500 thousand to shire revenues. same can be done with the Hastings pool… for all that time thceo, his bureaucratic sycophants and thesix spread disinformation about this situation and only we finally got some real information through FOI could they be embarrassed that they had to do something. the disinformation on this issues amounts to bold face lies on their part and i challenge them to take me to court on this statement.

      does this help???

      getting rid of theCEO is not a cost matter although there are lost out there tha could do the job better for less. The issue with theCEO is his bulling tactics and the disinformation he passes around. like the efficiency savings he claims and cannot substantiate for past years or what his plan is for uture years.

      I have almost no rubbish as i recycle almost all of it. bins are seldom 25% full. but would like a hard waste pickup once ayear at least like outhe shires have.

      interesting you ask this and i certainly am willing to explain. DAVID Gibb is makeing the same promises he made several years ago on his shet. i will be addressing this soon so watch for it. celi is another matter altogether

      actually the experienced officers will go nowhere byut need to be directed by the board of directiors (the council). they currently act as the board of directed by thevceo and his bureaucratic sypophants.

    Don’t want to tell everyone what your plans for council are?
    You’ll only discuss it with your group eh?

      I have no idea who this is but he/she is fun and i will continue to post them so you can all have a laugh. he/she is such a coward he/she cannot even post their real name. but then what would you expect?

      plans are to get rid of as many of the six Sycophants of Herr Doktor Michael Kennedy; DBA, OAM, CEO, “Principal Servant, Practitioner, Expert on Everything and Doctoral Researcher”: Mornington Peninsula, as we can and then to have a council that listens to the people not the CEO and his bureaucratic minions.

    Joe, you are a scary man. If you get any more than 20 votes they would all be from your group and family

    Joe, I’m glad you “have a plan”, but it’s not really enough to say that. You need another tab called “Joe’s plans” so that the punters can have a look at what you’re proposing for the shire.

      do not want to let cat out of bag. but will discuss on individual basis.

      i think you love your quotes so here is one on bullshit. good luck in figuring it out. it might be beyond your intelligence (that of a chimpanzee?) level………. unfortunately many of your quotes only go to confirm that U R D TWIT!!!!!!!!!! (from a previous twitty post of yours.

      “The contemporary proliferation of bullshit also has deeper sources, in various forms of skepticism which deny that we can have any reliable access to an objective reality and which therefore reject the possibility of knowing how things truly are. These “anti-realist” doctrines undermine confidence in the value of disinterested efforts to determine what is true and what is false, and even in the intelligibility of the notion of objective inquiry. One response to this loss of confidence has been a retreat from the discipline required by dedication to the ideal of correctness to a quite different sort of discipline, which is imposed by pursuit of an alternative ideal of sincerity. Rather than seeking primarily to arrive at accurate representations of a common world, the individual turns toward trying to provide honest representations of himself. Convinced that reality has no inherent nature, which he might hope to identify as the truth about things, he devotes himself to being true to his own nature. It is as though he decides that since it makes no sense to try to be true to the facts, he must therefore try instead to be true to himself.

      But it is preposterous to imagine that we ourselves are determinate, and hence susceptible both to correct and to incorrect descriptions, while supposing that the ascription of determinacy to anything else has been exposed as a mistake. As conscious beings, we exist only in response to other things, and we cannot know ourselves at all without knowing them. Moreover, there is nothing in theory, and certainly nothing in experience, to support the extraordinary judgment that it is the truth about himself that is the easiest for a person to know. Facts about ourselves are not peculiarly solid and resistant to skeptical dissolution. Our natures are, indeed, elusively insubstantial — notoriously less stable and less inherent than the natures of other things. And insofar as this is the case, sincerity itself is bullshit.”
