Why I’m running for council

Have you ever thought our council could do a better job at maintaining and improving our parks, roads and footpaths? Or perhaps you’ve wondered what our council has done to improve the services it offers to families and the elderly?

Well if you have you are not alone.

As a local resident, I often wonder why these important issues are not taken more seriously by our council. That’s why I have decided to stand as a candidate in the council elections to be held in October. In the coming weeks I will be releasing the policies that I will implement if elected.

In the meantime, if you would like to discuss any council matter or find out more about me please call the number below or send me an email

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Llewellyn Rees
