Why I'm standing

I believe that all of our communities deserve a voice, and I am not afraid to speak up in support of the community's views and needs.

My priorities
  1. Work with government agencies to make sure our roads are well maintained for the future.
  2. Introduce a user-friendly waste-minimising process, for a better environmental impact.
  3. Create outdoor spaces for our communities to use as safe environments for their families.
About me

I am employed in the rural sector, and I am passionate about supporting our farmers, so they also are listened to.
