This is a brochure on what I stand for:

I’m happy for people to have my email address and phone number 0418 246 524

I have lived in A ward for 46 years and I am passionate about Sutherland Shire. I have been mayor for two terms and on the council for 11 years.

I have chaired or have been a member of most council committees.

I am a true independent free from party politics and will vote for what is right in the shire.

My priorities for the shire are:

  1. Improve economic prosperity in the region by developing and encouraging small business.
  2. I support good development outcomes within the current character of Cronulla.
  3. I am pushing to upgrade Cronulla Plaza.
  4. Improve roads and parking in the area.
  5. Support and boost local tourism.
  6. Improve the services for the ageing population.
  7. Keep supporting and improving facilities for our young people especially sporting facilities.
  8. Continue work on reducing anti-social behaviour.

I do have extensive local knowledge and I pledge myself to work for an improved lifestyle for all. I will listen to your views and direct my efforts to solving your problems and make decisions based for the good of the Shire (“Real”). Re-elect me on September 8 and let me continue to serve you.
