I am run­ning for Deputy Mayor and Coun­cil­lor on the Der­went Val­ley Coun­cil.

I have been in­volved with the coun­cil since Oc­to­ber 1999, work­ing to im­prove com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties and en­deav­our­ing to de­velop the coun­cil owned as­sets oc­cu­pied in the Wil­low Court precinct as a tourist at­trac­tion — bring­ing vis­i­tors to the town and stim­u­lat­ing busi­ness growth.

I have a strong de­sire to im­prove fa­cil­i­ties avail­able for chil­dren, in­clud­ing pro­vid­ing a skate park on the Fairview side of New Nor­folk and up­grad­ing the play­ground near the newly opened Fairview shop.

This would al­le­vi­ate the present stress or par­ents wor­ried about their chil­dren trav­el­ling to the other side of the river to the cur­rent skate park and other fa­cil­i­ties.
