Koonung ward

Back to Main Election Page

I am introducing myself – to some of you who know me, re-introducing myself as your candidate in Koonung ward for the upcoming council elections.

I live in the Doncaster Hill precinct and know too well the issues and challenges concerning high density residential developments and been in direct liaison with the Heads of the Planning dept since 2002.

I have a young family all of whom attended local primary schools and secondary colleges, my 2 boys are members of the Doncaster Junior Footbal club since Auskick and the girls…young ladies now, have been with local basketball and Doncaster Calisthenics clubs amongst numerous others!

I’m a serving member on St Gregory’s Primary School  Education Board and have been for past 9 years (and part of that parish for 28 years), former president of Doncaster Kindergarten and have served on various local non-profit organisations committees.

I have attached below my Candidate Statement as it will be on the Voting Papers.

Your vote will ensure you have a leader with a strong representative voice to serve you better.

Thank you…
