The State Government has many areas to look after: transport, education, health to name a few, but the main one is to work for our residents now and into the future: to Predict and Provide.

“As your State Member of Parliament I will use every opportunity to represent the majority of residents in claiming our rural outlook and protecting our farmers while securing the best infrastructure outcomes for Wollondilly and the Highlands."

Prevent Over Development

During my time as Councillor and Mayor, I  have witnessed first-hand the exponential pressures placed on councils by the State Government to deliver new housing. Recently with the current state government's new approach to zoning and development.

With the State Government seeming to be influenced by the lure of big development investment.

As Mayor and Councillor I was aware that Wollondilly was meeting and on track to exceed its quota and yet we still see huge open ended rezoning to accelerate development with unnecessary densities and no commitment to the infrastructure to support even half the numbers proposed. This is why you have heard me often say there is a tidal wave coming.

This can be stopped by government and should be stopped. If they listened to and represented the community they would stop it.  The community want sustainable housing with the appropriate infrastructure

We need to stop, take a breath,  and think about what direction we want to take and how to master plan that, for the benefit of all in Wollondilly. Not for the benefit of investors from another part of town or another country altogether.

Together we can put Wollondilly and the Southern Highlands first.
