I AM standing for election as Mayor and Councillor.
This community has expressed to me their concern about how Council makes decisions that affect them. They desire change and want strong leadership.
With relevant tertiary qualifications, and with 12 years leading an award winning NGO, and in senior roles during my career in the disability sector; as a former tourism business operator, and teacher in vocational education and training, I have a range of appropriate skills and knowledge.
As Mayor I will ensure all Councillors get training in good governance, so that decisions made are accountable and transparent, responsive to the needs of the community, and to ensure community members have the opportunity to participate in decision making processes that affect them.
