Carl Veugen - Group F Save Tuggerah Lakes
Running with: Daniel Johnson and John Caska
Q. What do you consider to be the most important issue facing the Ward you would be elected to represent?
A. Firstly there are the problems with the Mangrove Mountain Landfill and the illegal waste dumping at Spencer.
Both of these issues need independent investigations, also there is the problem with the dangerously choked channel entrance to the Brisbane Water which needs to be fixed before lives are lost.
Our roads need to be fixed: no more patch ups.
Q. What do you consider to be the most important issue facing the Central Coast Local Government Area?
A. To bring the whole community together to try to remove the us and them mentality which has existed within the whole of the Central Coast for years due to having two councils.
The entire Central Coast is now one region and we all need to work together to make the region the best it can be.
Q. How would you, if elected to Council, set about addressing that issue for (a) your Ward, (b) the region?
A. Once elected, the first thing is to see the makeup of the new council and to establish a good working relationship with the other councillors.
Then I will fight for my ward to get its fair share of the budget spending to address the issues the community feel are of most significance and require urgent attention.
The region as a whole requires all the elected representatives to put their personal agenda's aside and focus on the region not just their wards to make it the best place it can be.
