Local is the ONLY level of government that I am invested in. It’s where people meet and work shoulder to shoulder to get things done. We know each other’s names, we see each other at the shops, at the parks, in our schools and in our front yards. Local government serves PEOPLE and the needs of small, local communities. At the local level, people rely on one another to nurture safe and connected communities.
I love LOCAL.
As a passionate community advocate, I work closely with local community groups. I have assisted many committees including Moorooundu Sports and Leisure precinct, the many local school P&Cs, community groups, men’s shed, bushcare groups. I am proudly the patron to Mates Theatre Genesis and the Wynnum Redlands Canoe Club at Tingalpa Creek.
I have served for four years on the SEQ Council of Mayor’s Economic Development Working Group, striving to advocate for a community-centred vision supporting local economic initiatives.
I have participated on the Regional Arts Development Fund committee in Redland City for over 8 years, and have held the position of Chair since 2014.
After years of research and study, I have developed a way of working with people wanting to make change through a process called Local Community Action. Join us!
It is working together with a shared vision and shared voice to bring positive change.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” (Margaret Meed)
