Personal Statement:
Thank you to the residents of Central Ward for giving me the opportunity to serve them for another 4 years. When doorknocking, the cost of living is constantly mentioned. This is why I support keeping a lid on council rate increases, and no fees for hard waste collection or green waste bin. With your support at this election, I will work to upgrade Kings Road and Waterloo Corner Road. I support employing local residents to do verge mowing instead of contractors. I will address safety issues caused by hoon drivers and nuisance trees. I will continue to ensure wasteful spending is eliminated in favour of allocating resources towards core Council services. As an enthusiastic, community minded Councillor, I will continue asking the tough questions and fight to increase the quality of basic services - Let's get Council back to basics, not fund extravagance.
