=== Statement begins ===


As your Ward Councillor for the past 4 years my commitment and priority has been to listen and represent you.

I have concerns about the excessive rate rises and the increasing financial overheads facing Council. In the past, I have been alone in speaking out about these matters and I will continue to do so.

I believe that we must tighten the budget and focus on council core responsibilities which include drainage, road maintenance and maintenance of existing infrastructure while planning and structuring the budget for future needs such as kindergartens.

I have represented council on the Committee for Drouin, the Disability Advisory Committee and the Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee. I have an active interest in youth issues and attend our Youth Action Committee meetings and events. I support small business and the preservation of the TAFE to help our youth and to create greater employment opportunities. I will work to promote improved quality of life for seniors and positive aging.


The people of Drouin deserve someone who listens to them, and will represent them with energy, drive and enthusiasm.

I greatly value our community organisations and take pride in being accessible, reliable and responsible as your representative for the next four years.
