Personal statement:
As an elected member who lives and went to school locally, I'm 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 ask Council to employ locals instead of contractors to improve verge maintenance. I support free hard waste collection and a green waste bin. I will make it easier to remove nuisance trees and introduce a community bus service. I'll crack down on hoon drivers by introducing portable CCTV in hot spots. I'll ensure that Council provides high quality, parks, reserves, roads, footpaths and recycled water to homes. As an enthusiastic and community-minded local, it's my priority to increase the quality of basic services - whilst keeping rates low. Let's get the basics right before funding extravagance. I am always available at 0437 987 990.
