A number of people have called for a genuinely Independent Community candidate who is able to knowledgeably and competently represent the many facets of community that make up the Richmond electorate.This site is designed to introduce me to those who do not know me, to give you an idea of my professional background, and to explain my passion for a healthy, sustainable location and planet for my (very new)grandbaby to inherit. I will be including new information on a daily basis and invite you to email issues, questions and relevant information (concise please) you think will be of relevance and interest to others in this community.
To nominate as an electoral candidate requires a degree of foolhardiness. It also requires resources that most people do not have readily available for disposal. What I am trying to do is to show that it is possible to institute a process whereby ‘good’ candidates may be supported by the broad community through a ‘commitment to investment’ to help them get up!
If you are:
Committed to genuine democracy not party politics
Sick of politicians making promises they cannot keep
Fedup with spin and pollies who are disconnected from communities
Aware that Independents can make a massive difference when they are in the balance of power
Looking for an broad-based alternative to major parties
Looking for someone who will help you invest your grandkids future (even if you don’t have any right now)
Then come along for the ride! (and please go to the ‘how you can help’ page. Every little bit is crucially important)
