I am standing for election to continue representing all the ratepayers and residents of Cooma-Monaro Shire. I have been a Councillor since 1991 and in that time have never lost sight of the fact that I have been elected to represent the people not the Council itself.
I have always believed that the CMSC should be far more efficient and userfriendly. I believe that we need to focus on efficiency and keeping increases in our rates, fees and charges to the minimum.
I have been very concerned with the poor quality of our rural roads since the seasons have improved and I believe that we need to put more resources into rectifying this situation.
I have always believed that if a common sense approach is used and the basics are done with a view to efficiency and delivery of good services, the majority of people would be happy with our Council.
