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.

Seems there has been a lot of press on the issue of these bags in our parks. During my last term on Council it took over 12 months to get staff to agree to and install these bags in Page Park, an area frequently used by people to exercise their dogs. I suggested at that time that Council should look for a way of obtaining sponsorship to help defray Council costs. Maybe Pal would be interested if a little bit of advertising was allowed on the dispensers. So the idea is not new and the matter even more urgent as many bags are not being used for the correct purpose. I still think I'd find it hard to use a dog poop bag for anything but its intended purpose! I
still seem to get enough plastic bags when I shop that I rarely need to purchase any.
