I’ve achieved a lot and plan to achieve more. Collaboration and cooperation are key. I’ve worked hard to encourage all councillors to engage in our council’s deliberations, changing meeting procedures to ensure every item on the agenda is given proper consideration. For example, I’ve ensured we no longer take the ‘lazy path’ of on-block voting on motions unless they are withdrawn for debate.
Under my watch, employing a new CEO has re-energised our council. He has restructured the workforce to match our current strategic priorities, enabling a positive new start in council’s business management.
I retired from TAFE in the middle of the year. This means that I can and will devote 100% of my working time to Mayoral responsibilities. These include representing our Adelaide Hills Council on the Southern and Hills Local Government Association board and the Metropolitan Local Government Group. Collaboration with other mayors is important to promote the needs of our local communities to the state and federal governments.
Your vote matters. I ask you to place your confidence in me to on your behalf, lead our council for the next 4 years.
