Providing Local Leadership and Working For You

I am Clarence Park.

It is natural for me to be Providing Local Leadership and Working For You in Clarence Park.

Why? I am Clarence Park. I live, play, socialise, and walk in the streets of Clarence Park. I know the trees, the streets and the footpaths, the parks and playgrounds. I know so many of its people, its clubs, associations and community groups. I am your neighbour.

Providing Local Leadership and Working For You

Proud of the Past

As your Councillor I have been Providing Local Leadership and Working For You and working with you to make our neighbourhood what it is. I am proud of what we have achieved together in the past 8 years.

Successes include but aren’t limited to the following:

 

Success Bullet Points

Above all, by representing you and advocating for you, I have helped many of you with difficulties with Council’s administration.

Committed to the Future

There is more to do though, requiring continuing strong local leadership from whoever is representing you.

I am still committed to working for you and providing the local leadership you expect. Certainly, the leadership necessary to ensure that Clarence Park, Black Forest and Millswood will be the suburbs of choice for our children and grandchildren.

Whether it is developing the Goodwood/Millswood sporting precincts. Likewise, dealing with traffic and parking issues, or higher density housing. Certainly, better and improved communication with Council, or keeping your rates as low as possible I will represent you and advocate for you.

Watch this blog site in the coming weeks

for specific goals I believe you want me to pursue.

If you wish to suggest issues for me to consider please do by either ringing me on 0414820773 or by my personal email [email protected] I am unable to receive them on this website as doing so will be in contravention of the Local Government Elections ACT 1999.

Are Your Leaders Showing Leadership or Merely Expert Spectators?

I remember reading once that before you can be a leader you need to be able to follow. Can I ask are your community leaders showing leadership? Or are they merely spectators?

I also remember being a member of a club whose whole 20 some membership formed the management committee. At meetings of this club a group would sit in the background talking about what was happening in their lives outside the club. They would then complain as soon as the meeting was complete about the poor decisions being made by the committee.

Another memory was attending a seminar where the speaker spoke about “the exerts are all in the grandstand”.

He spent 45 minutes differentiating between those on the field and those in the grandstand. He talked of the athletes making mistake after mistake but getting back up again. Of how they left their guts on the field.

He then spoke of those in the grandstand. Those self-appointed experts who spent the entire match criticising those game enough to put their bodies on the line. Those who pulled apart and examined every mistake and who called for the sacking of some of the gladiators.

Back to you! Does this portray your community leader/s. Or do those representing your community on Council have vision. Are they leaders showing leadership.

Are they prepared to enter the debate. Prepared to explore, examine, and be prepared to make decisions. To be part of the solution.

Do they do this at Council level. Do they then also contribute at an LGA level?

In other words, are your leaders showing leadership or are they simply spectating and/or complaining. Do they sit back at Council level, wait for others to move motions and then criticise?

Do they help you through the bureaucracy, whether at Local level or at State and Federal level or do they simply criticise Council staff or the various government departments?

Listen to what your leaders are currently saying about membership of the LGA.

In November you have the chance of rewarding your leaders or replacing them, if you believe they aren’t, with someone who will provide the leadership you deserve.
