Why I'm standing

I am running for council out of sheer frustration with the way council conducts its business.

My priorities
  1. Transparency/accountability.
  2. Roading.
  3. Spending.
About me

Hard working, honest, don't procrastinate. I don't sit on the fence. I Call a spade a spade and get things done.
