Why I'm standing

Our community board has done a great job in dealing with our communities issues and needs, but there is always room for improvement. I want to add a younger perspective to the community board and raise engagement and interest in local issues with the younger generations. I want to be engaged in our issues and help provide solutions where possible.

My priorities
  1. Engage with the community and understand what issues are important to us. Connect with our council.
  2. Work to develop a close relationship with council and staff to enable successful outcomes for us.
  3. Push for my recycling, public transport and road improvement ideas. Engage as much as possible.
About me

I co-own 2 businesses and actively manage a third. They are in manufacturing, recycling and engineering. I have served my country in the Army Reserve and have been involved with many Civil Defence events across the country. I have also been an urban bus driver. I am passionate about our area and want to use my knowledge and experience to help the community and make a better future for us all.
