I am proud to call Tarneit home and have lived here with my wife and young daughter for almost a decade.
Our community is growing, and we need to build new infrastructure on time to keep pace with demand. We must also fix our local roads to reduce traffic congestion and ensure police and local community safety programs are properly funded, to keep this area safe for our children.
I want a safer, cleaner and more liveable community for our families, and that is why I am standing for election to Wyndham City Council. I will be a strong advocate for our area on Council, and my extensive experience in community work demonstrates this.
I believe in giving back and supporting the community, values which I have inherited and am actively involved and also volunteer with various organisations. I have also passionately led local campaigns for improvements to local roads, parking facilities, traffic signals, indoor swimming pool, buy local and save jobs.
If elected, I will work hard to represent you on Wyndham City Council. I will listen to your thoughts on how to make our community a better place to live, and I will make sure your voice is heard.
I hope I can count on your support.
