The Southern Downs deserves a member whose focus is on the Southern Downs electorate.

Who will provide strong leadership.

Vibrant communities rely on local people

  • using assets in new ways,
  • working cooperatively,
  • improving networks,
  • mobilising existing skills,
  • putting innovative ideas into action.

The outcomes are not only jobs, income and infrastructure but also strong functioning happy communities.

Early in the campaign, I asked people what extra leadership they felt was needed in our region. Here are a few thoughts, but what are yours?

Many opportunities involve innovation and experimentation rather than radical change.

Communities, government and business must work together to support existing and these new initiatives in order for our towns to flourish.
