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.

National Broadband Network
Residents are showing some concern about recent announced changes to the NBN. Not only is the service likely to be inferior to what was originally proposed it will also require the installation of large metal cabinets on Council footpaths. These will present problems for Council as they are likely targets for graffiti (the removal of which is likely to be done by Council), they will be easy targets for theft of the copper wires, will often need repair or upgrading and are a hazard if flooded. On top of this who will volunteer to have one in front of their homes? While the example below is the New Zealand response to the ugly boxes (they are being used as community art sites) a better solution would be to ensure Unley is served by the superior fibre to premises model.
