I am a long-term Ballarat North resident, married with an adult daughter.
I want to be your Independent North Ward representative on Council, to balance the move towards personality and party politics.
I want to restore community confidence in our Council. The way that Council functions is critical for the future of our city. Council sets strategic direction, maps out the community we want and secures vital project money from Melbourne and Canberra.
I want Council to provide strong leadership for our community – to do that you need strong and effective councillors. The COVID situation demands that we review all Council plans so that we can restart the local economy.
For 30 years I have had the privilege of being CEO of Basketball Ballarat. I am proud of the positive impacts the Association has had on the Ballarat community. My role has seen me manage a diverse business with a $5.8 M turnover, a staff of 55 and over 1,000 volunteers.
I am passionate, motivated, hard-working and have strong management skills. I want to offer my leadership experience to serving the North Ward and the City of Ballarat.
I love Ballarat, our location, our outstanding services, as well as affordable housing and liveability which we must protect as we grow and evolve.
I have proven governance, business and networking skills, helping secure $41.67M in Government funding for major community projects across Ballarat in recent years.
I am committed to our whole community, and to getting a fair go for our outlying communities and smaller townships. I want to ensure that the North Ward is part of our positive future.
I would value your vote as I seek to become your Independent North Ward councillor.
