“As someone who grew up in the area, I’m really proud of our district. When I first ran for Council I felt our community had been neglected for too long and wanted that to change. As Councillor, I’ve worked hard to ensure our district gets its fair share.”
In the beginning there was a lot of work to do, and I remain committed to constant improvements in our community. My main motivation continues to be improving our public spaces and upgrading our transport network. That means better parks, roads and amenities, plus more opportunities for recreation and fun in our local area.
