Brief description: I live in Kingscliff with my two sons and I am the holiday rentals manager at LJ Hooker Kingscliff.
2 What has motivated you to stand?
The Tweed council needs team work and I joined the group to support Carolyn Byrne and ensure her success as our lead candidate
3 What is your vision for the shire/LGA?
Jobs, sustainability and investment is what our group believes in and these three pillars are essential to the future success of our region.
4 In your opinion, how can council best balance the need for further residential development with the need to preserve the local environment?
Population is the key to the balance but I am a realist and understand we live in an amazing part of the world and there are a lot people who think the same so I have always put a lot of trust in the local and state environmental planning laws to ensure we ‘get it right’. Entwined in all of this is the realisation that the community can also get together and fight for a cause that they all believe in, just like the fight residents of the Tweed took on in the Land and Environment Court against the relocation of the mega-sized local area command police centre being located in the middle of residential Kingscliff.
5 What particular issues do you feel strongly about?
The resolve of the community to fight against the local area command police centre at Kingscliff. This is such an overdevelopment in the middle of our community that it defies belief they even tried in the first place. Not only does it affect Kingscliff residents but it also affects every resident in the Tweed from a station response time perspective.
