I work full-time with Enterprise, Training Company (ETC) as the NEIS Program co-ordinator, assisting the unemployed and disabled to start up their own small businesses.
Spending time on our farm at Coombadjha, on the Mann River is what I love to do, when I am not working in the community.
I will continue to make balanced decisions with a whole of Clarence Valley perspective.
I will continue to contribute to economic growth by supporting sustainable devel- opment without compromising our environment.
I will work hard to secure mental health facilities and will work with the tourism board to attract more visitors to our Valley.
I will continue to support the arts and culture of our Valley by the volunteer work that I do with the Gallery Foundation.
Those who that know me or have met me, know that I am passionate about our community and my work with the unemployed.
I have moved notices of motions on a CSG Moratorium, feral dog control in National Parks, to name a few. I will continue to listen to the community.
I am one of the least-outspoken councillors on council, but I do listen and I do act.
