Personal Statement:
As an Elected Member who lives, works, and went to school locally, I am aware of what is important to residents. When doorknocking, the cost of living is constantly raised. This is why I support putting a lid on Council rate increases. I will lobby for better quality verge maintenance and community bus service. I support free hard waste collection and green waste bins. I will make it easier to remove trees causing damage to property. I will work with Council to introduce portable CCTV cameras in hoon driving and illegal dumping hot spots. As an enthusiastic and community minded local, I will continue to work to increase the quality of basic services - whilst keeping rates low. I will work hard to eliminate wasteful spending and allocate Council's limited resources towards core Council services. Let's get the basics right before funding extravagance. Always available on 0411 281 164.
