Personal Statement:

I love this City.  I love everything about Salisbury.  Its strong and diverse community.  The underlying civic pride.  I admire the enterprise of our community and business leaders.  I'm proud of the achievements of our Council, especially our world class wetlands.

Our civic centres and suburbs are models of good urban planning.  Council's commitment to expand our open spaces has made them welcoming places for community life.

I know our City.  I have lived here most of my life.  I have watched its transformation to become a modern and vibrant city.  I have been proud to represent my community for two decades.  I'm grateful for the opportunity to have been both Deputy Mayor and Mayor.

I believe in our City.  I believe that together we can make Salisbury even better.  We will build on our strengths and use our resilience to create a more prosperous, energetic and outstanding City.
