Alex Grimes

Candidate for Nillumbik Shire Council - Edendale Ward

Hi, I'm Alex

I’ve been an Eltham local  most of my life and am passionate about our beautiful community. I’m a renter, a gardener, and a third-generation member of my family business in the mudbrick building industry. 

I believe in creating and sustaining a Nillumbik that highlights everything we have to offer. We can’t do that without prioritising looking after our environment. We need to keep our streets clean, invest in renewable energy for our buildings and vehicles, and create safe streets for all of their users. 

I will work for our local community, put people ahead of profits, and take real action to keep our environments thriving. I will build trusting relationships with the community so local democracy can thrive. 

Our community is struggling with the cost of living and housing affordability. Council can play a key role in creating constructive, sustainable and inclusive local responses to big problems.

Your vote is powerful.
