Why I'm standing

I am concerned for our council in the direction they are heading is not best for the district.

My priorities
  1. Create a transparent view on where the council ratepayers' money is being used.
  2. Ensure infrastructure is maintained to avoid damages to council and property owners.
  3. Support all employment possibilities for the district.
About me

I have been involved as recent employee with council for the past 18 years, I have a good knowledge how things are run internally.
