Local Government

Russell Yardley stood for council in November 2008. His platform and the material he published is now published here. This website covers those matters that impact the wellbeing, planning, environment and accountability of the Macedon Ranges community.

Having graduated in Science (Physics and Meteorology) from the University of Melbourne I have always been impressed by evidenced based, authenticated arguments and encourage people I get involved with to question urban myths and request confirmation of the accuracy of claims and most importantly data used in developing public policy. I recently came across this excellent TED presentation by Michael Specter. It is just 16 minutes long and well worth the time to watch it.
