Denis Doherty ran for the office of Lord Mayor and Councillor of the City of Sydney in 2012. He is a long serving member of the Communist Party of Australia (CPA) but ran on a joint Housing Action ticket calling for more public and affordable housing. In keeping with the profile of the party, he attracted just a small fraction of the vote.
