I recognise that we have problems and so do you!

I stand for:

• Financial responsibility


• Strong and transparent leadership

• Approachability and concern

I have been a resident of Warragul for 26 years and first came here to manage the Warragul Leisure Centre in 1986 and did so for 17 years.

I am a business owner and employer in Baw Baw Shire and have been for 20 years.

I have always maintained a commitment to the Baw Baw region and am not standing on any one issue.

My concerns are to offer an avenue to financial accountability, an open leadership style and an opportunity for people to have a councillor that LISTENS.

As a councillor I will perform with an open mind as I am not politically aligned and have no connection with any special interest groups. I will judge every issue on its merits and base my decisions on what is best for the community as a whole.
