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 two is­sues I be­lieve are paramount: Firstly, growth of our lo­cal economies and sup­port­ing lo­cal jobs. We need to pro­mote our re­gion and its ad­van­tages. Se­condly, en­cour­ag­ing new busi­ness and en­ter­prise to es­tab­lish in our re­gion and pro­mote tourism in our area, which is rich with op­por­tu­ni­ties for vis­i­tors. Our lo­ca­tion of­fers ease of ac­cess to other re­gional ar­eas and city lo­ca­tions. We have the room to wel­come and sup­port large in­dus­try ex­pan­sion and we have job seek­ers keen to work in th­ese busi­nesses. Small busi­nesses add the colour and vi­brancy to our com­mu­ni­ties.

2. One con­sis­tent com­plaint from res­i­dents is that rates are too high. Do you agree that rates are too high?

Rates are a con­tentious is­sue. I be­lieve res­i­dents would be hap­pier to pay their rates if they saw them be­ing used in more “value for money” man­ner.
