Father, Businessperson, Community Advocate
I’m a proud father who enjoys spending time with my family, getting involved in the community, relaxing down by the beach, and exploring the bush
Day-to-day, I am the Managing Director of a family-owned real estate business that is built on the foundation of a tradition of trust and delivering quality service to our clients.
Local issues which impact on the residents and ratepayers are important to me and to the future of our region.
Why am I running for Mayor
Our community deserves a strong local voice in the office of Mayor to ensure we get our fair share and that we achieve that through a council that we can all be proud of.
There’s a community movement that wants to see the important issues appropriately addressed throughout our region.
I’m standing up to make a contribution to our community so it becomes a better place for all of us.
I have a strong and vested interest in ensuring our region is great place for families to grow up in; where small business can be successful; a safe place to live; and that we have a great lifestyle to enjoy here.
I’m the candidate for Mayor who will end the bad old days by delivering us a council that we can all be proud of and that will be better for all of us.
Ending the bad old days
When the bad old days of this Council end the region can begin to take full advantages that the opportunities of growth and development present for the benefit of everyone, not just a select few.

Our vision for our region
As a region, our best days are ahead of us.
We’ve never had a proper regional council focused on protecting and enhancing the lifestyles of residents.
We’ve only ever had a council focused on development and making profits of multimillionaire developer donor mates.
We need certainty that our council is working for us the residents and that we have a council that we can all be proud of.
There will continue to be some pretty significant growth in throughout the region.
There’s a real need to fill in some of the neglected gaps in things like public transport links. Improving the road network to work without the need for more traffic lights will be a priority.
It is really important to keep supporting the still emerging community organisations which are the real lifeblood of the community for decades to come. Getting more community facilities rolled out so we can further grow our region as a positive, vibrant and exciting centre.
