IAN GIBB, NORTH WARD

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

1. The stan­dard an­swer is I be­lieve that I can make a dif­fer­ence in our coun­cil.

Our ex­ist­ing coun­cil is do­ing a good job of man­ag­ing roads, rub­bish and rates al­beit with con­sid­er­able fi­nan­cial re­straints.

I be­lieve the coun­cil needs to stim­u­late ac­tiv­ity that will drive busi­ness in our town and this is what I want to bring to the ta­ble if elected on Oc­to­ber 21.

2. Nannup’s reliance on grants is our sin­gle ma­jor is­sue. Nannup needs to stim­u­late ac­tiv­ity that will pro­vide em­ploy­ment.

3. Nannup has a num­ber of sig­nif­i­cant tourist devel­op­ment ideas on the ta­ble and most of th­ese will im­pact sig­nif­i­cantly on our small town.

To this end Nannup is well served, we sim­ply need to en­sure that the de­vel­op­ments are man­aged well to give max­i­mum ben­e­fit to Nannup.

4. We can en­hance em­ploy­ment prospects first by be­ing a busi­ness­friendly coun­cil. This is al­ready hap­pen­ing but we can do bet­ter in my opin­ion.

5. I re­tired about five years ago and to be frank my pas­sion is to see oth­ers do well in busi­ness and to see our small town pros­per with­out los­ing the Nannup ap­peal.
