Well the elections have come and gone and what an incredible experience it was to be a part of my first election campaign running number three in North Ward alongside two awesome representatives of the North Ward - our Deputy Mayor Robyn Preston and coming back for his second term, Councillor Dr Peter Gangemi.
I am pleased to say the voters supported the great job these two councillors have done over the last five years along with the outgoing councillor for North Ward and new State MP for Seven Hills, Mark Taylor and in doing so I am pleased to say I am your new North Ward Councillor for the 2017-2020 term.
Over 70% of the primary voters supported the Liberal party in North Ward and for that I say a huge thank you and I promise you all I won’t let you down.
So a little about me... I have a been local in the Kellyville area for over 16 years, married with five children and two grandchildren and was awarded an OAM for services to the community and athletics supporting the likes of the McGrath Foundation and Relay for Life.
I have been the President of the Hills District Little Athletics Club - the third largest little athletics club in NSW for nine years and I am in my second year of President of the Hills Athletics Club which is the senior club and one of the largest senior clubs in NSW.
I am on the sporting grants committee representing the federal electorate of Mitchell and also on the sporting grants committee of our local electorate Baulkham Hills.
I am currently employed as the Commercial Sales Manager for St John Ambulance NSW in a role that gives me great satisfaction because all of the funds we raise selling first aid training, first aid kits and AEDs all goes back to funding the awesome work of the volunteers.
So in summary I plan to work hard for all of the local people I will represent in North Ward, giving you a voice at local level, improving things such as the infrastructure, more
open space, more sporting fields and more importantly I plan to roll out to every primary school aged child taught in The Hills Shire the first aid in schools program that gives every primary school aged child the basic skills of first aid over the next three years.
In closing, again let me say what an honour and privilege it is to be elected to local council especially The Hills Shire Council and I look forward to some very exciting times ahead and I have no doubts I will work hard to ensure everyone that I will leave our awesome community in even better shape than it is now.
