Nick Russian, who met Kanye West, runs for Lord Mayor of Melbourne

Nightlife king Nick Russian and his influencer wife Rozalia could be Melbourne’s new power couple if he decides to run for Lord Mayor and wins. 

Mr Russian was reportedly called by ‘senior people within the Liberal Party’ who asked him to run for Lord Mayor of Melbourne on Wednesday night.  

‘I am certainly honoured to be approached to run. Small business has and will always be in my blood and I have worked in Melbourne for my whole life,’ Mr Russian told The Herald Sun

‘I will consider with my family in coming days.’

The Liberal Party does not normally endorse local government candidates but is reportedly trying to take advantage of anti-Labor sentiment during Melbourne’s Stage 4 lockdown. 

After taking a five-year break from Twitter, Mr Russian has returned to the platform during the lockdown by retweeting posts that are critical of Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews.    

Melburnians are currently banned from dining in at hospitality venues under the lockdown and can only use takeaway or delivery options. 

‘Rebuilding business must be a key to the city’s recovery and Nick (Russian) has the runs on the board and respect for this,’ a Liberal Party insider told The Herald Sun.
