Rinaldi to stand again


An independent City of Ballarat councillor has indicated he'll stand again at October's City of Ballarat local government elections.

Jim Rinaldi says he's concerned at party politics creeping into local government following this weeks announcement of 6 Labor endorsed candidates and 3 Greens.
The Liberal party does not endorse candidates for local council elections.
"I don't want to be told how to vote or what to eat, I just want to make decisions that are the best for our community, and that's by listening to them and not being directed by the party politics," Mr Rinaldi said.
