LCIT was formed in 1994 by Aldermen Colin Harrington and Alf Vella as an alternative to the major parties and to promote the election and re-election of LCIT members to Local Council. Both Aldermen were former members of a major party and were unhappy with its progress in providing community support. Colins’ investigation into the “Oasis Project” stopped further ratepayers’ money being wasted on a doomed project.
Over the past 27 years and 7 Local Council Elections (Council in Administration for 4 years). Seven (7) LCIT members have been elected to Liverpool City Council with Colin Harrington serving 4 terms. 1 Member elected as Mayor and 3 Members elected by their peers as Deputy Mayors. LCIT has had 2 serving members for 6 of the 7 terms in Liverpool City Council and narrowly missed out in the 2012 elections.
