Meet the candidates

I have been a resident of Michelago since 2004. I stood for Council in 2008 to represent the concerns of residents in the electorate who were seeking fair and equitable consideration for rural ratepayers. This also included issues around climate change, the environment and biodiversity, land zoning and planning policies and sustainable development. Council has addressed climate change through adopting the aspirational target of 50/50 by 2020; it is the first council in NSW to draw up an integrated 30 year Water and Wastewater Strategic Planning Strategy for the shire; the draft Local Environment Plan should be out for public comment in the near future; the Cooma Central Business District Plan has been endorsed and improvements have already commenced (Centennial Park, trees and footpath restoration); and Council has adopted its Community Strategic Plan.  Council has also sought additional funding from the NSW and Federal Governments for rural roads many of which are in poor condition. If re-elected, I will continue to work hard to achieve outcomes that are in the best interests of the community
