Melbourne music businessman James Young has announced he will put his name forward to run for Lord Mayor in the City of Melbourne.

Young has had a career of successes from running the programming of Melbourne community station Triple R, his own advertising agency and then taking over Cherry Bar in the centre of Melbourne and turning it into an iconic music venue.

Young was also involved in the process of changing the name of a Melbourne laneway into AC/DC Lane to reflect the band’s formative stages when living in the City of Melbourne.

He developed the Cherry Rock music festival for indie bands and most recently unveiled the Bon Scott statue in AC/DC Lane.

Without a doubt James Young has been the most proactive champion of music in Victoria is the past decade. His work ethic applied to local government will continue the growth of Melbourne as one of the world’s greatest cities.

James Young announced his decision to run for Lord Mayor of the City of Melbourne today.

UPDATE: James Young not eligible to run for Lord Mayor of Melbourne:

“I’m 52.
Its 2018.
It’s time for me to do things differently.
I am going to run for the Lord Mayor of Melbourne role.
Nominations open 5 April.
I hope you support my nomination?
I have never been more serious in my entire life”.
