I have worked hard to encourage all councillors to engage in the deliberations of council and have changed meeting procedures to ensure every item on the agenda is given proper consideration. Abandoning the previous approach of on-block voting on motions unless they were withdrawn for debate.
Employing a new CEO has re-energised the organisation as he has a restructured the workforce to match the strategic priorities of the current council.
I retired from TAFE in the middle of the year and now have no distractions from council duties. This means if I am re-elected I can devote 100% of my working time to Mayoral responsibilities which include representing Adelaide Hills Council on the Southern and Hills Local Government Association board and the Metropolitan Local Government Group. Collaboration with other Mayors is important for promoting the needs of our local communities to the State and Federal Governments.
I look forward to the opportunity to lead the Council for the next 4 years.
