Why I'm standing

I want to be a local voice for my rural community on current issues.

My priorities
  1. Retain our water infrastructure within our local council and protect it from privatisation.
  2. Implement a rate review which challenges our current rates model and makes it fair and affordable.
  3. Introduce council led support for local farming and food security.
About me

I am actively involved in my community and want my council to be community led.
