I AM a long-time resident of the Clarence Valley being raised in South Grafton, educated at South Grafton and Grafton schools, and then working mostly in Maclean where I reside with my wife Lexie.

Our family has maintained an active interest in sport and community activities and I feel that my work in the NSW public service, with the NSW Canegrowers farming organisation, and as a self-employed accountant in public practice provide the experience to be able to carry out the responsibilities if re-elected as a councillor.

 

Platform

Council and the outgoing councillors have at times received criticism but they have also achieved some good things for the Clarence Valley, which were possible with substantial funding from the Australian government and also Clarence Valley Council.

Projects readily to mind are the new or greatly improved sporting facilities at Yamba, Maclean, South Grafton and Grafton.

Also improvements in Skinner St which is rejuvenating the South Grafton shopping centre to a main centre, which it used to be several years back.

I strongly support industry, business and employment throughout the Clarence Valley, the environment, the need for better health facilities and better maintenance of road and assets.

I am not aligned with any political party or group and if elected I will do my best for the Clarence Valley.
