Running with Victoria Collins and Jim MacFadyen
Q. What do you consider to be the most important issue facing the Ward you would be elected to represent?
A. In the Gosford East Ward we need to address the maintenance of our roads and pathways.
Some roads place pedestrians and cyclists in real danger.
The dangers include inappropriate speed limits, pot holes (of course) and maintenance of bush verges in locations including but not exclusively Avoca Drive in Kincumber.
Q. What do you consider to be the most important issue facing the Central Coast Local Government Area?
A. Apart from the obvious Roads, Rates and Rubbish, the most important issue would be the abandonment of the community by the majority elected councillors.
Council has walked away from our wants and needs.
Council community committees should be part of any good Council I would support reinstating such committees and am appalled that they had been disbanded.
Q. How would you, if elected to Council, set about addressing that issue for (a) your Ward, (b) the region?
A. Fixing the dangers on the roads can be done by using best practices in road repairs, addressing drainage and looking at ways to reduce vehicular traffic.
Fixing community consultation is as easy as being available and responsive to the residents and local businesses.
