Outdoor seating, live music and a vibrant township. That's the Wollongong Greens' big vision

"We need a night-time mayor to help businesses make it through tough times. That's what we're going through now and we need a vibrant, diverse, creative night-time industry and that's what they champion." - Cate Faehrmann, Greens Music and Night-Time Economy Spokesperson.

"We want to be able to go to a bar or restaurant in your local village, it doesn't necessarily have to be in the CBD. We want these small bars to be in our villages and towns and operating really successfully with the full support of Wollongong Council." - Jess Whittaker, Wollongong City Council Greens Lord Mayor Candidate.

"Labor does have the biggest block on Council and I think it's also on them that this hasn't already happened, because it should have happened." - Jess Whittaker.
