As a community independent it is important that my policies reflect our communities needs and concerns. Below are the common issues that form my priorities for the Willoughby Electorate based on your feedback. My volunteer team and I will be continuing to door knock and pop up in your area and we would love to hear your thoughts on these priority areas and what matters most to you? As a true independent free from vested interests and factional influences I am uniquely placed to openly and accurately represent the views of our community on the floor of Parliament and negotiate real change.
INTEGRITY AND TRANSPARENCY
Strengthen ICAC, stop “pork barrelling”, support the cashless gaming card, challenge conflicts of interest, release business cases & contracts
CLIMATE, ENVIRONMENTAL AND FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY
Stop cost blowouts, retain public assets in public hands, faster action on climate, address plastic pollution, support our green economy transition
STOP OVERDEVELOPMENT – PROTECT HERITAGE & CULTURE
Return planning to local communities, safeguard heritage, review CDC criteria to retain local character, preserve our villages, master plan our growth areas
PROTECT OUR GREEN SPACES
Honour heritage and wildlife corridors eg Flat Rock Gully, return green space to the community eg Cammeray Park, stop loss of our urban and native forests

TRANSPORT, TOLLS AND TUNNELS

I have lead the charge when it comes to questioning these projects by forming community groups, coordinating submissions, submitting an 11,000 strong petition to Parliament and lobbying successfully for a Parliamentary Inquiry. I have read almost all of the 20,000 pages of environmental impacts and I have consistently met with, educated and lobbied our decision makers. I understand this project better than any of the other candidates and I believe that a community informed is a community empowered. As a direct result of the work I have done over 6 years we have seen both sides make promises and the current government make some major changes to the Western Harbour Tunnel alignment which has saved Sydney Harbour from dredging. Far more can be done to save our green spaces and transform this corridor but I need your help to do it. By putting my voice in Parliament you will have a direct line to the government and a spotlight to shine where these projects fail to serve the public interest. I will hold the government to account to their promises whether than be Labor or Liberal and I will push them to go further/ much further. Only a representative free from factional pressures and party interests can truly hold the government of the day to account and we need that Independent voice to be put on the floor of Parliament now before these $22 Billion projects proceed any further.
