Three years Why did you de­cide to run?: I love Tom Price and want to see it re­main a fam­ily-friendly, well-re­sourced and fa­cil­i­tated town. What have you been in­volved in lo­cally within the Pil­bara? In my time in Tom Price I have pre­vi­ously been pres­i­dent of TPPS P&C as well as school board chair­per­son. I en­joy help­ing coach and um­pire the ju­nior foot­ball (as best I can)! What do you think the big­gest is­sue fac­ing the Pil­bara to­day is? The big­gest is­sues fac­ing the Pil­bara are ac­cess to se­cure full-time em­ploy­ment for lo­cal res­i­dents and ac­cess to med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing men­tal health. The Pil­bara pro­duces an amaz­ing amount of this State’s and the na­tion’s wealth yet is dras­ti­cally un­der-re­sourced in many ar­eas.
