Why I'm standing

Our area needs some good direction based on today forward. We need to be proactive for the future.

My priorities
  1. Ensure that the community is listened to, understanding that one size does not fit all.
  2. Look for ways to engage the young people in the area as they are our future.
  3. Communicate with the community, listening is more important than telling!
About me

My experience has taken me to many parts of the world and broadened my understanding of people and their needs. I have chaired several local organisations and am involved in others with success.
