As an independent politician, I fight for our community without the need to play party politics and follow the demands of powerful vested interest groups.
I began my work in politics to achieve change in my neighbourhood. I wanted to see green open space for a growing number of families in the inner-city, and our city's heritage protected.
I believe democracy comes with rights and responsibilities, and I encourage everyone to participate issues that matter.
The NSW Government is pushing for reforms to the size, shape and role of local government. I am deeply concerned that these changes will erode your democratic rights. Increasing the size of local governments could destroy the 'local' character of a community and lock out independent political voices.
