Australian champion bodybuilder Martin Sifredi has attracted considerable attention in the Monash council election. The patriot’s message is one of personal commitment, fiscal responsibility and cultural diversity.
Some are thinking he could be Australia’s version of Arnie Schwarzenegger. Unlike Arnie, would-be councillor Sifredi has down it all naturally, the hard way.
His candidate’s statement with the VEC tells the story:
This year Monash residents have copped the highest rate increases in our history. As the reigning ‘Mr Australia” natural bodybuilder champion, I understand that achieving the best outcome requires discipline, strength and determination. That’s what I’ll bring to Monash Council. I’m from an Italian background and I love that we are a multicultural city. Our tolerance and diversity makes Monash great. I’ll energise Monash and make sure our young people have things to do to stay engaged and out of trouble. I’ll restore some economic discipline and freeze future rate increases. These are difficult economic times and the Council needs to cut its spending to stop rating families out of existence. I’ll ensure the Council upgrades our vital infrastructure and that it looks after our pathways, reserves, rubbish collection and library services. I have proven I can get results in bodybuilding. I now want to tackle our Council.
