I have been devoted to the City of Adelaide for eight years, working as part of our council team to deliver on key outcomes that have transformed our beloved town into a city that we can all take pride in.
Adelaide is a city for creators, thinkers and believers – a fusion of unique people who embrace our history, have contributed to its foundations and created a canvas for our future. Adelaide is defined by its people; we need to build and retain our strong communities, implement a plan for economic development and ensure residents, workers and visitors relish our city culture.
If we want the best minds to setup in Adelaide, we need the best minds working at Adelaide City Council. The combination of experienced hands and new voices ensures council delivers on its core business, while attracting a promising future. This is the only way to secure the diverse portfolio of people required to drive our missions and secure wins for our state’s capital.
By re-electing me as your Central Ward Councillor, I will continue to champion for the city I love, consulting and supporting the community I am immersed in. Our capital city must support a future for my family and every family in South Australia. Together, we can create a Better Adelaide!
My track record speaks to my character as a solution-driver community leader. I am the elected member you can consistently rely on for outcomes.
- Be the most accessible Councillor
- Lower your cost of living and doing business in the City
- Listen to you and work for you
- Keep Local Government by your side, not in your way
- Deliver better essential services to you
- Make Adelaide more liveable and beautiful
- Encourage the world to discover Adelaide
It gives me great pleasure to serve you as an elected member. Here is a snippet of what we have achieved in creating a betterADELAIDE in the 2014-2018 term.

Have your say in the future of your City, through our betterADELAIDE survey. What would you like to see happen in Adelaide?
Why wait until after the election to find out?
Did you know candidates do not have to disclose any donations or affiliations until after the election?
I am happy to tell you anything you would like to know!
Who is funding my campaign?
I am not funded by the big or small end of town. All of my campaigns are self-funded; I have never received any donation (cash or in-kind) for any of my campaigns. I am grateful to the friends who have helped me distribute flyers and advocate for me where they can. I only ever want to be held responsible to you, the voter, and wouldn't want to be accountable to anyone but you.

I am happy to tell you anything you would like to know before you cast your vote.
Am I supported by a political party?
I have been a member of the Liberal Party of Australia for almost 10 years. I am a believer in the founding principles of the Liberal Party - lean governments with minimal interference in daily life, incentives over limits, freedom, social justice and nurturing individualism.
As you can appreciate, and just like you, i do not always agree with every policy position a party makes in Australia, and the beauty of our democracy is that we can always have our say. Over the last 8 years, I have always put the interest of rate payers of the City of Adelaide above anything else, and with that I have never received any support in the way of donations, printing or database access from the party, nor have I ever asked for support.
