Chris Holstein - Group B Independent
Running with: Lorraine Wilson and Bob Puffett
Q. What do you consider to be the most important issue facing the Ward you would be elected to represent?
A. The issues are many, from Woy Woy rail underpass, channel access to Brisbane Water, Brisbane Water drive upgrade, cycle ways, development in general, to name a few, but down to the very localise issues of Spencer wharf for example.
If I am to define that in one issue it will be delivering the community link to council in that elected representation to listen, liaise and act on all those matters and more.
Q. What do you consider to be the most important issue facing the Central Coast Local Government Area?
A. For the region it will be for those elected in the five different wards finding common ground, acting as one to deliver for the Central Coast as a whole.
Q. How would you, if elected to Council, set about addressing that issue for (a) your Ward, (b) the region?
A. If elected I will work with all the other councillors to highlight the needs in the West Ward, and to understand their respective Wards' needs.
To find common ground with other councillors beyond individual ideologies or political interests to move the Central Coast forward.
To commit that in my role as a councillor to be available to listen to all citizens and use the 25 years' experience in civic life to base my decisions on common sense and a full understanding of the facts.
