Why I'm standing

I am here to promote local resilience from the grass roots, to strengthen community. I encourage us to have character; share local resources and help each other. My vision is to encourage us to bring out our gifts, talents, passions and embrace opportunities – to raise up the best in people; to encourage and motivate each of us to engage and care.

My priorities
  1. 'Easy to understand' resources should be presented to the public about every decision being made.
  2. Every document from council that is voted on by council should be responded to with creative ideas.
  3. Present alternative 'conservative financial plans'. Involve more locals in development work.
About me

I am an activator of new solutions and have relentless positivity. I realise the significance of everyday people and focus on bringing about positive outcomes for all. I offer fresh thinking, creativity and an informed perspective based on well grounded research methods. I action great ideas – more than words and thoughts. I inspire others, build teams and get things done.
