1. Name three issues, specific to your division, that you will aim to fix during your term if elected and how you will do so?
The first issue I will address is the feeling by the division they do not see their council representative. I will be present in many places every week so I keep up with the issues within the community. I also intend to hold community meetings across the division. The second issue is many of the smaller communities feel they are neglected without many of their problems attended too. I will make sure their voice is heard. The third issue within Division 2 is there are a number of drainage jobs that need attending to.
2 One consistent complaint from residents is rates are too high. Do you agree rates are too high?
Rates have risen too high too quickly. Council needs to identify better practices and service delivery methods to save up to 5% in the first year. Management methods need to improve to allow those savings to be made.
