Working for You.

Councillor, Clarence Park Ward. City of Unley. Working for You.

Councillor, Clarence Park Ward. City of Unley.

Hi! I am Don Palmer and I am Working for You.

Back in 2010 I was privileged to be elected by you (the rate payers of the Clarence Park Ward of the City of Unley) as one of your two Councillors. Since then, along with my co-councillor, I have been working for you and on your behalf.

The role of an elected member of a council, as stated in the Local Government Act, is—

(a) as a member of the governing body of the council—

 (i) to participate in the deliberations and civic activities of the council;

 (ii) to keep the council’s objectives and policies under review to ensure

that they are appropriate and effective;

 (iii) to keep the council’s resource allocation, expenditure and activities,

and the efficiency and effectiveness of its service delivery, under

review;

 (b) as a person elected to the council—to represent the interests of residents and

ratepayers, to provide community leadership and guidance, and to facilitate

communication between the community and the council.

 In other words. Working for You.

Our relationship

As I am working for you it is important that I hear your views. I cannot truly represent you without your input. I therefore want to hear from you.  There are many ways you can do this by,

ringing me on 0414 820 773,

emailing me at [email protected],

messaging me via Facebook, or

contacting the council and asking for them to pass a message on.

This web site via the blog page provides another opportunity.

To keep up with my observations about what is or is not happening in the Ward, and the City of Unley generally hop over to my blog page here. Then, if you have a comment please post it.
