I believe in open communication, active listening and a common sense approach, always.

Meet the Canditates Night - Toogoolawah. I really value questions from the floor and the opportunity presented for residents to share their concerns. It is here that you become very aware of what is important at the grassroots level. Some concerns are more the responsibility of the State Government, however those wishing to represent us for the next 4 years must be aware and respond in the very best way, whether through collaboration or by other strategies.

With such a diverse and educated group of candidates, attending these nights are so important on a very individual level of understanding and association. ... See MoreSee Less
