What inspired you to run for Council?

Having grown up in Frankston, I am driven by a passion for our community to become a better and safer place.

What are you top areas of focus for the next four years?

My priorities include law and order, campaigning for more police, cracking down on anti-social behaviour and lobbying for a new police station in Langwarrin. I’m also passionate about addressing public safety, infrastructure and the delivery of necessary services.

I will also promote an environment that attracts and retains businesses, such as extending free parking time in the Frankston CBD.

Families in our community are doing it tough, so I will strongly oppose any cutbacks to essential services, particularly in these uncertain times.

What do you believe are your strongest qualities?

As an independent councillor not beholden to any political party, I will always encourage an open, direct dialogue with my constituents and warmly welcome views on the important issues that affect us all.

What do I love most about the local area?

Frankston City has everything – stunning beaches, tranquil bushland, great walks, a state of the art aquatic centre, great sporting facilities and increasing job opportunities. It’s wonderful that locals can live and work in such a vibrant municipality.

Q) Have you been vaccinated against COVOD-19

A) I have received the double dosage of vaccination against COVID-19. Vaccination is the best way of protecting yourself, loved ones and your community against COVID-19. Safe and effective vaccines are free for everyone in Australia, including those who are not Australian citizens or permanent residents. To access our services and venues you will need to show proof of your vaccination status. You can do this by linking your vaccination certificate with the Service Victoria app, ready for use when you check in. For more information on how to link your certificate, visit the Service Victoria website.
