I love living on the Sunshine Coast and feel so lucky to have grown up here, attending local schools and being involved in community life since I was a child. I want people to have the same opportunity to live, work and raise their families here while cherishing our region’s natural beauty.
Listening to Locals
I’m always actively working in the community, including as patron of about 20 organisations, and listening to people about how we can make our area even better. I’m pleased to have helped secure funding for many volunteer groups who are enriching the lives of others through community service.
I’m proud to have delivered some great achievements including most recently our new $1.8b public hospital, safety upgrades to the Sunshine Motorway, new boat ramps at Twin Waters and Mooloolaba, a permanent sand-pumping pipeline to replenish Mooloolaba beach with dredged sand from the river mouth and upgrades to the Mt Coolum walking track.
I’m committed to putting the Sunshine Coast first. We must work together not only for a fairer share of the infrastructure pie but also for a bigger pie in light of recent State-wide cutbacks by the State Labor Government. Together we can grow the regional economy, support our local small businesses, cut the waste and ease the cost of living burdens and keep our Sunshine Coast liveable and beautiful.
