Pre-election video (March 2016)
Experienced, capable and dedicated with much more to give
I enjoyed the role and duties of being Councillor for 17 years, with 8 of those years as Deputy Mayor, in connecting with peoples’ ideas, aspirations and views.
I took my role as Councillor and Deputy Mayor very seriously and have a background in leadership, business management and governance of large businesses and community organisations.
“I am very passionate and am committed to the South Burnett region and apart from my family, this region is my sole focus”
As the elected Mayor in March 2016, my commitment these principles remains the same:
- I will observe the principles of financial management, good governance, democratic representation, social inclusion and meaningful community engagement
- I will adopt transparent and effective processes and make decisions in the public interest
- I am known as a person who will adopt ethical and legal behaviour and will insist on the standards in the Council that I lead
- I will support a continuation of service delivery, management of Council’s assets and search for sustainable development.
