Yes, I am a candidate in the March 19 Gold Coast Council elections!
I am running once again to represent the people of Division 5 after vacating that privileged position in 2012 to take up the challenge for Mayor of the city.
Since then I have been progressing complex export contracts for Australian products into China and other countries. This is challenging and rewarding but my heart and passion has always been for good government, and I have kept a keen eye on Council and what it is doing and achieving – good and bad.
I believe that this city desperately needs good leadership, and local communities need a fair go, and I am once again motivated to stand up and be a strong representative for the people of Division 5.
People know I am not a ‘yes man’, and that I am answerable only to the community. People know that I get things done – whether it be in your local street or park, or on broader issues such as rates and charges, or big ticket facilities for our community.
You can be certain I am an independent – I have never been a member of any political party and this gives me the best capacity to stand strongly and get the best results for the people of Division 5 and the city.
