Kingborough is a great place to live, learn, work, play and raise a family. As your councillor I will be dedicated to achieving a financially responsible and environmentally sustainable future so that all community members can continue to enjoy this special place.
My professional background includes 10 years’ working as a community development officer in local government, in community service organisations and in state government policy. My local government experience means that I understand the systems, policies and processes that make council tick and to get things done.
I am an active and passionate volunteer in our community and have contributed to community and sporting groups and committees,- including being a founding member of Sustainable Living in Kingborough, the Community Group of the Year award winner in 2017.
Kingborough is growing and we need to plan for the future to suit the needs of our changing community including the impact of a growing tourism market, the large number of families moving to the area and our older Tasmanians.
Our future planning needs to consider: improved bicycle, walkway and sporting infrastructure, housing affordability, improved public transport, park and ride services, upgrading of our public amenities, review our waste collection services, bigger and more playgrounds and better community engagement.
I will continue to support the work of the Council on zero waste initiatives, climate change responses, activities and events that foster community and cultural connection.
I will listen, respond, act and represent our community to ensure we can all continue to enjoy our beautiful Kingborough.
