Why should I vote for you?

I have a broad range of experience, continuing to learn and ask difficult questions. We can achieve the best outcomes by leveraging the community ethic. It is more effective to educate rather than legislate. I favour governance by sound judgement, not sound bites. There aren’t easy answers to challenges we face.

 

Your main goal if elected?

To provide strategic vision to help Victoria to provide the leadership the world needs in evolving a sustainable and inclusive community, and leverage and enhance our most valuable assets, human resources and quality of life to foster economic growth and self-actualization.
