This election is a great opportunity for our District to discuss the critical
issues and together plot the most positive path forward
Amongst the Critical issues are:
Rates: - In these challenging times the need to focus on keeping the rate increases
down is imperitive. There has been a growing awareness that the timing and number of
projects undertaken directly impacts on rates. I have found this heartening as this as the
cornerstone of my election policy three years ago. Moving forward I would like to furthur
enhance this by promoting a greater scrutiny of the decision making process for individual
townships to ensure the pace of future increases reflect peoples wages and ability to pay.
Rural: - the dominant force on rural rates is always roading. Central government 's present necessity
for fiscal restraint dictates that, for the foreseeable future, budgets are going to be tight. I believe that
this requires us to fight hard to ensure we are getting our share, while maximising efficiencies and
keeping an open mind in the in the search for the fairest balance for the entire district.
Youth: - I passionately believe our districts future prosperity depends on maximising the
potential of our young by providing the most positive environment for them to want to stay
and flourish here. Along with supporting other inititives, I have come up with a few of my
own to make this belief a reality. I believe to do so is not only morally right but makes sense
from an economic perspective. If we give our kids a chance they will stay here and very
soon will be putting wages into our economy, children into our schools, and contributing in
tmany more ways to our communities. And the bonus is that Ready Steady Work inititives
were not only positive in so many ways, it has not cost the rate payer. This concept offers a
proven path forward to increase our population and economic prosperity.
These are only a few of the issues and I would love to hear your thoughts and what is
important to you so please don't hesitate to contact me. 027 476 3595.

Juniors taste success
Star struck: Two of the 11 award winners at Clutha Rugby Club's junior prizegiving were under-13 winger Mason
Tourell, left, and No 8 Jesse Hutton, both 12. They received their honours from Otago ITM squad members Paul
Grant, left, and Matthew Faddes. Grant and Faddes were guests of honour for the event at the Glasgow St
clubrooms in Balclutha, and ended the prizegiving with a rugby question-and-answer session for their young
audience. Meeting the players had been ''awesome,'' most improved Clutha Whites player Jesse said.
