VICKI HANSEN, NORTH WARD

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Times Nannup Shire Council Candidates -

1. I have the skill set, knowl­edge, com­mit­ment and pas­sion to sup­port the Nannup com­mu­nity in re­main­ing vi­brant and sus­tain­able. I have ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in fi­nan­cial man­age­ment, hu­man re­source man­age­ment, build­ing projects, cor­po­rate gov­er­nance and risk as­sess­ment. I am a com­mit­ted and ac­tive mem­ber of this com­mu­nity. I am run­ning be­cause I truly care.

2. Nannup faces the same chal­lenges as all ru­ral towns – find­ing em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for our young peo­ple, en­cour­ag­ing both young fam­i­lies and re­tirees to move to Nannup as a life­style choice and med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties for our age­ing pop­u­la­tion. Main­tain­ing a bal­ance be­tween guard­ing our vil­lage-like com­mu­nity and em­brac­ing fu­ture op­por­tu­ni­ties.

3. Nannup at­tracts thou­sands of visi­tors through our five main fes­ti­vals. We of­fer fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ences for cy­clists, walk­ers and horse rid­ers, with spe­cial trails and fa­cil­i­ties. With such a small pop­u­la­tion we rely heav­ily on our most gen­er­ous lo­cal vol­un­teers, we need to sup­port the com­mu­nity in pre­sent­ing and pro­mot­ing th­ese events.

4. Nannup is ide­ally si­t­u­ated within an easy daily com­mute to Bus­sel­ton, Man­jimup and Bridgetown. We have affordable hous­ing, great com­mu­nity in­volve­ment, sport­ing fa­cil­i­ties and an en­vi­able life­style within a beau­ti­ful phys­i­cal land­scape. Em­ploy­ment in th­ese nearby towns is a vi­able al­ter­na­tive. Eco and ad­ven­ture tourism are a per­fect fit for Nannup.

5. Sup­port for our lo­cal pri­mary pro­duc­ers and their qual­ity prod­ucts. Pro­mo­tion of our lo­cal artis­tic tal­ent in­clud­ing artists, writ­ers and pub­lish­ers. Grow­ing gar­den tourism through sup­port for our streetscapes and lo­cal dis­play gar­dens.

Im­proved med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties to cater for our re­tirees and young fam­i­lies. Fi­nan­cial vi­a­bil­ity, affordable rates.
