Troy Marquart - Group D Liberal
Running with: Sue Dengate and Jack Wilson
Q. What do you consider to be the most important issue facing the Ward you would be elected to represent?
A. As a staunch Coastie, I am appalled that Labor and the Greens have publically noted their desire to tamper with Australia Day from a council level, even before the election has been held.
This attack on Australia Day is an attack on our Australian values and gives local voters a snap shot of what to expect from Labor and the Greens in Council.
Q. What do you consider to be the most important issue facing the Central Coast Local Government Area?
A. Over the past 15 years, with my wife Kylie, we have built a successful local business, Shoreline Sports Floors.
It was born from hard work and dedication, positive attributes the Liberal Team is looking to bring to Council Chambers.
Using this as inspiration, my passion and goal is to ensure every dollar of the Council budget is spent to benefit Central Coast locals.
Q. How would you, if elected to Council, set about addressing that issue for (a) your Ward, (b) the region?
A. I can pledge that our united team will protect the institution that is Australia Day and keep policy discussion on topic.
Local roads, local infrastructure and local issues need to be debated by the new Council.
A vote for our Liberal team will be a vote for Common Sense Council.
We must understand the community needs, and will work with all levels of Government to fight for our fair share of funding on the Central Coast.
Only a strong Liberal Council will protect and grow our $9.6 billion in assets, and ensure the $204 million Capital Works budget is spent in our Central Coast region.
