If successful in the upcoming election, I will continue to fight for better community facilities in the local area.

Residents deserve a Councillor who puts the local area first. During the next term of council I will ensure that The Ridge sporting complex along with the golf course is completed and that the Menai fire station is rebuilt and up to the standards the brigade members deserve.

I firmly believe that residents rates should be spend on Local projects and not on political fights. As our area grows and ages we must ensure that community facilities are maintained. The Shire has come a long way, E ward needs an experienced proven councillors to continue the journey.”
