Its been reported that support for the YES vote in the local seat of Kingsford Smith was 64.1. If so this clearly endorses the position taken by Randwick Greens Mayor Lindsay Shurey in her recent Mayoral Minute that supported a YES vote.

Greens Mayor Lindsay Shurey led Randwick Council forward in supporting a YES vote.

Randwick Greens Councillor Murray Matson said that he and fellow Greens Councillors Philipa Veitch were delighted by the result.

Cr Matson said the strong local YES result vindicated the leadership position taken by Randwick Greens Mayor Lindsay Shurey. He said:

“Greens Mayor Lindsay Shurey clearly was in tune with the positive position of the Eastern Suburbs community and reflected it accurately. I am proud of our Mayor in how she lead Randwick Council at this emotionally intense time.

He said that the next step of the campaign was to call on federal MP’s to enact “real” legislation. The Federal MP for Kingsford Smith is Labor’s Matt Thistlethwaite.

“Now it’s time for Federal MP’s to move on and do their job by bringing in marriage equality legislation that genuinely does justice to the expressed will of the community.”

There has been a stronger than national average pro YES vote in the Randwick Council area.
