"Wollondilly is more than capable of representing itself. In my 14 years as a Councillor I have met countless members of the community that are proud, passionate and dedicated enough to make great representatives. We do not need or want outside influence or interference."
I am local.
I have lived here for 28 years.
I have raised my family here in Wollondilly.
I have served in local government for 14 years, 3 of those years as the Mayor.
Now I seek your support in running for the state seat of Wollondilly, which includes the Southern Highlands. The Wollondilly and the Wingecarribee are facing many challenges and numerous outside pressures, which have the potential to ruin what makes this region the home we love. Equally we have the potential to turn these into opportunities to enrich the character and lifestyle we all value.
Based on mutual respect and the foundation of what is best for each and every one of us; I will ensure that the relationship between the electorate and state government is strong and healthy, no matter which party makes up the Government of the day.
Each morning I wake to this sunrise from our property in Theresa Park and each morning I am energised and encouraged to do all that I can to protect and promote our beautiful landscape.
Therefore it is with great pride and motivation that I vow to each of you, that I will do all that is in my power, as your elected MP to put your lives, your lifestyle, our environment and its character first above all else; as we charter a future that best serves our region, the city and our State.
