I have represented the Ward in 1995-7 and again from 2006 to the present time. I find being your representative on Council to be very rewarding. Please find out more about current items that I think are of interest as well as my achievements for the Ward and plans for the future.

Meeting Schedule Restructure
We also need to discuss who will be on each committee for the following 2 years (until the next election). The Development Assessment Panel was selected at last month's Council meeting ahead of other positions. There was no valid reason to do this other than an officer had erred in his judgement. The result was that despite a desire for change from a majority of members the existing panel was re-elected. This seems like a contradiction but with our current voting system both can be true. It's certainly time we used a fairer system.
The other things to be considered are;
Do we need a deputy mayor?
Should positions be rotated so that the best aren't hogged by the few?
How long should one serve on a committee if others want a chance at the same position?
Should the chair of the new committees be paid more money?
What advisory groups do we need?
What should be the future of the Goodwood Oval Advisory Group?

In reponse to a question from Ron.ReplyDelete
My commitment to Unley and Goodwood South is unwavering; I am available to anyone in the area that wishes to discuss with me any Council matter either by email or face to face. Everyday I am out and about in the area, I am busy identifying issues as they arise and trying to ensure a better amenity. I notice footpaths that need repairing, dumped rubbish, fallen branches, trees that need pruning, infrastructure that needs repairing or is not working as intended. I get them fixed. If I'm not doing this you might find me in a coffee shop, buying the groceries or attending a public event. At other times I will be in meetings and workshops advocating on your behalf. I do this because I am passionate about good government and believe I make a diffrence. I'm happy to meet with you to discuss this commitment.
