What I stand for
I see myself as a representative of the West Tamar community
rather than a political person. I am a genuine independent
and I am absolutely free from party political pressures.
As an independent, I keep an open mind on issues until I
have heard all the arguments. I usually don’t lock myself
into a position on legislation until I have consulted my electorate
as much as possible and listened to the arguments for and
against. There is no point in making up your mind until you
have looked at all the facts and ramifications and listened
to as many arguments as possible.
That’s why I particularly like to hear from groups who might
foresee effects of legislation more clearly than the legislators
I want to encourage everyone in Rosevears to get in touch
with me about any issues or concerns. Phone 0407 448 905 or
As a resident in the electorate and a participating member
of the community, I want to see it go from strength to strength.
I want to see it a safe and caring community for our children.
I want to see a inclusive and tolerant community.
Some of the issues which most concern me are”
- Affordable housing. We must make it easier for our young
people to get their feet on the housing ladder.
- Infrastructure and community facilities. The West Tamar
needs safer roads, better water and sewerage services, child
care, walking and cycling tracks, among many other things.
- Health and Education. Like the rest of Australia, Rosevears
needs more preventative health measures---let’s keep our
community fit and health and out of hospitals. On education,
we must encourage more skilled and dedicated teachers, and
keep our schools better maintained and make them more pleasant
places for kids.
- We live in a wonderful environment, but it is under great
pressure. Let’s plan to keep where we live beautiful and
- Jobs. No community can survive without jobs and a strong
economy. The way to achieve this in Rosevears is to capitalise
on what we have and what we are good at.
