Shoalhaven City CouncilOur Candidates and Our Plan for Shoalhaven City Council
I’ve lived on the NSW South Coast for 17 years and have been representing the Greens on the Shoalhaven City Council for the past 8 years. My working life has been diverse – I’ve operated a family business, had a career in banking and now own and operate a cattle farm in the Milton area.
I’m a big believer in community consultation, which is why I chose to be part of a party that’s all about grassroots involvement. During my time on Council I’ve witnessed how important community involvement is to local projects and I’m convinced that local knowledge is an essential ingredient for finding solutions to local problems.
John spent the first 57 years of his life in the Sutherland Shire where he and his wife raised three children and ran successful businesses in both the printing and real estate industries. In 2003 the family bought land at Tomerong as a holiday destination and moved there permanently in 2007. John’s history of community activism goes back to the 1970’s. read more…
Kaye and her husband bought their first home in the Shoalhaven in 1999. Kaye chose the Shoalhaven for the unspoilt beaches, the bushland and the holiday memories from her childhood.
Kaye has been a community campaigner all her life. She has organised grass roots responses to everything from destructive waste products to the destruction of local foreshores. She worked in women’s employment projects for many years, then retrained as a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine. A long career in private practice, developing a successful small business, followed.
Kaye will campaign for quality, local, family-friendly services, and family-friendly local development.
