The quality of candidates for ward elections is high and as a result I am not preferencing. Please vote for all the candidates you would like elected, not just the first two. The preferences will decide many of those elected.

It has been a privilege to serve as Councillor and now Deputy Mayor. I seek your support to be able to serve you as Mayor.

With my best wishes,

Corflute recycling

Corflute recycling

Some plastic bottles are recycled - which is great! But there are plenty that aren't ... which is why I want to see more than 100 water fountains installed across the City of Unley! 💦

If I'm elected mayor - this is exactly what I intend to do.
So what about the plastic that we're using in the election campaign? 💁‍♂️
My plastic corflute election signs (that you'll see up on stobie poles around Unley) are all going to YCA Recycling, a proudly SA specialist sorting and processing plant ♻️
What do you think of recycled plastic products?
Have you got any great re-use ideas? 💡

Stop Trips for Safe Walking

Safe Footpaths 

Tree roots lift the pavers so why not some prevention rather than a cure.

We need to accelerate our tree well program. I proposed these in my 2009 newsletter to save water costs and to increase the resilience of our trees. Now so many of our trees do not have wells drawing the tree roots away from our pavers! We want safe footpaths and trip free footpaths so when we plant a new tree we need to ensure deep water to draw tree roots down.... improving safety and saving money.
