This has been dragging on for too long - serious collisions can be avoided by fast-tracking this project. It needs to go all the way to Sellicks, and not just stop at Aldinga.
Count on me to get It done!
If you know me, you would know that I am passionate about my community.
I am blessed with a beautiful family who stand by me wholeheartedly in all my endeavours. With my husband, we care for his 91-year-old father who lives with us and I also have the pleasure of regularly babysitting my little grandson.
I work tirelessly as a local Councillor in Onkaparinga’s Wine Coast Ward and I enjoy working for the betterment of residents, supporting local businesses and ensuring local youth achieve positive outcomes. I mentor children at Aldinga Primary, as I believe that it is important to create a safe and understanding environment for the young. It is so important that children thrive and feel valued and, in the same vein, for the elderly to feel respected.
My involvement in my community includes, but is far from limited to:
- chairing the local business association
- participating in the Onkaparinga Economic Development Forum
- being on the board of the local Bendigo Community Bank
- being President of the McLaren Vale Bocce Club
- being a member of the Southern Vale View Club (The Smith Family recipients)
- working with the local Lions Club and the Aldinga Community Centre where I regularly assist with ‘Fred’s Van’ supplying meals to those in need; and
- assisting many other organisations and community groups
I have a very strong belief in my community, and assisting them to achieve the best they can is my mantra. I seek your support to continue my work in a bigger forum in the South Australian parliament representing Mawson.
SA-BEST will achieve the best outcome for our region, because we listen and, as I have proven to so many people over the past three years as a local Councillor, consistently get positive outcomes.
Working hard, being fair minded and reasonable, is my second nature. You can truly feel confident backing me will ensure that I represent you and your community, in our State Parliament.
With Best Wishes,
SA-BEST Candidate for Mawson
Some of the issues that need real action...
Main South Road Duplication
Too many community health services in Mawson are 9-5 Monday to Friday, and that’s not good enough. I will fight for solutions and funding for after hours health services are available throughout Mawson.
Better Public Transport
There’s an unacceptable lack of integrated, affordable and convenient public transport in Mawson (including the cost of going to and from Kangaroo Island). There must be a co-ordinated approach with Local, State and Federal Government to deliver practical outcome - I will make it my priority to drive those changes.
Mains Sewer for Sellicks
I have already met with SA Water to push for Sellicks residents – still on septic tanks – to be connected to sewer services on a fair and affordable basis. This needs to happen.
Promote our Tourism Assets
Our tourism assets on the Fleurieu and KI need to supported and promoted much better. Tourism drives jobs, and prosperity in local communities - and I will work hard to maximise those opportunities.
