Diane Teasdale

Ms Teasdale started a Facebook page in August to canvass public interest in her standing for Greater Shepparton City Council rather than announcing her candidacy.

But when nominations opened this month, she decided to make another bid for a seat on council after a 2012 campaign when she polled 626 votes or 1.99 per cent.

Ms Teasdale has previously supported Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party, but says she has never been a member of the party or run for office as a One Nation candidate.

Ms Teasdale says she is focused on cutting out wasteful council spending and stopping any Woolworths development for Shepparton, arguing the supermarket giant would wipe out the existing IGA business.

She does not support the development of Shepparton Art Museum and would seek to have council provide more accessible, cleaner public toilets and well-maintained public gardens, utilising the labour of local people.

Ms Teasdale says she also wants the council to gift part of the city’s existing freight centre land upon which a drug rehabilitation centre could be developed.
