The meeting was convened by local resident Willem Popp.
Of the elected representatives, only the Mayor of Kingston, Cr Tamsin Bearsley was on the agenda to speak.
“It is a wasted opportunity to have elected representatives of all political persuasions – MPs and councillors at community meetings without the opportunity for them to speak on issues important to their local communities, ”Mrs Peulich said.
Mrs Peulich said any organisation opposing SkyRail should use public meetings as a tool to be heard and to understand their representatives’ positions.
“I encourage the community to invite local elected representatives of all political parties and across the three levels of government to public meetings to place on record their position on SkyRail, so that the community is in no doubt as to their stand,” Ms Peulich said.
“The Andrews Government’s consultation is a sham where bureaucrats are deployed to manage community dissent and anger and then present pretty pictures that make ugly graffiti canvasses look like pieces of modern art.
“Skyrail is not an acceptable option for existing residential and commercial areas such as those along the Frankston line,”Mrs Peulich said.
“The community should be lobbying their elected representatives on such radical proposals as SkyRail along the Frankston line corridor, which would decimate the amenity and liveability of our Bayside suburbs.
Mrs Peulich said that with Federal and local government elections scheduled for later this year, opponents of SkyRail should also use public meetings as an opportunity to have their voices heard by those who seek their vote.
