In an interview on Geelong’s 94.7 The Pulse with Mitchell Dye, former Geelong mayor Darryn Lyons has refused to rule out running in the October elections.

“I never say never to anything. I would say at the moment [that] it’s a real ‘wait and see’,” he said.

“My burning passion for the Geelong community is brighter than ever and I have a tremendous amount of unfinished business.”

“I should be allowed to finish off the journey that I started.”

In a wide-ranging interview, Mr Lyons also spoke about:
‘attacks’ from the state government and previous councillors,
his thoughts on the scrapping of the directly-elected mayor model, ‘greed’ and ‘backroom deals’, and
his thoughts on a ‘dysfunctional’ period working with deputy mayor Michelle Heagney- “we just didn’t agree on anything”, “it was always about undermining.”
