Why is Nomi standing as an independent in the Caulfield Electorate?
  • Neither of the major parties represent the community.
  • Neither of the major parties have integrity.

Why is Nomi representing Caulfield?

You were in a major party, how can you call yourself an independent?

Until recently we did not have a legitimate option for voters or candidates aside from the major parties.

If you were a moderate who cared about your community and wanted to get involved in changing law and policy, you had a choice between one of two major parties. Thankfully, those days are over.

Like many people in our community, I have shifted away from these major parties and moved towards seeing a brighter independent future where politicians are not beholden to unions or big business.

How is Nomi’s campaign funded?

Unlike political parties, who can effectively access unlimited funds for a state election campaign, donations to independents and individual candidates are capped at $4,320.

Our campaign has received donor support from within our own community and beyond – from numerous small $10 and $20 donations through to the maximum. All donations over $1080 are published on the VEC website.

We’ll continue to work hard and abide by the rules in place for election funding in Victoria.

Is Climate 200 supporting Nomi’s campaign?

The Nomi 4 Caulfield campaign began with the support of locals who wanted a change in Caulfield.

Climate 200 have seen our policies, what we stand for and what we are doing, and are supportive of Nomi.
