NOMINATION FOR DIVISION 5 RE-ELECTION LODGED

I have today nominated for re-election as the representative for Division 5 of the Bundaberg Regional Council.

20 years of experience and an array of interesting times and experiences over five terms of Council has provided me with a wealth of experience. Some of these have been good and some not so good. However, with several new faces guaranteed on the new Council, I hope to be able to share that experience by working collaboratively with a group of independent representatives in an open and transparent Council.

Over the past term, we’ve witnessed many improvements to infrastructure and services within Division 5. These include footpaths, roundabouts, sewerage, potable water, parks and associated play and shade facilities, to mention but a few. However, one of the most significant projects must be the soon to be completed Hughes Road Extension. Seeing this project so close to fruition has certainly made me feel rewarded for the hard lobbying over many years and I’m sure will be appreciated by the local and surrounding communities.

I look forward to continuing as a totally independent representative, free of the shackles associated with party politics or voting blocs. I’ll also continue to make community consultation the backbone of my commitment to the role through my weekly Meet & Greet sessions which will continue as they have over the past six years.

My wife and family have always been my staunchest supporters for which I am eternally grateful. They have also supported my desire to continue to deliver services and infrastructure to the residents of Division 5 and the wider region, by re-nominating for the 2020/24 term.
