unChain Inc is an incorporated body of people who live or work in Port Phillip. We were originally brought together (under the former unChain St Kilda banner) by our concerns about the then proposed overdevelopment of the St Kilda Triangle site — but as it became clear that poor governance was the underlying factor creating many issues of concern among the citizens of Port Phillip, we started to focus our efforts on across the board democratic process to achieve better community leadership in the municipality.
The 2008 Port Phillip elections resulted in two unChain candidates being elected. In the 2012 elections, three unChain candidates were elected.
unChain believes that community issues shouldn't be fought on party political lines - we think the best councillors come from hard-working and involved members of the local community, rather than political party careerists. Amongst the ranks of our wider membership, we have current and former members of all political parties.
unChain President: Catherine Sharples
