The Macedon Ranges is where I am raising my young family. Protecting the village character and rural lifestyle we all enjoy is important to me. If elected, the seat on council would not be mine, but that of the people. To build our future, we must work together to make common sense decisions that benefit everyone, and not the privileged few. The community should lead the conversation about how we invest in our future. Gisborne is an important service hub. It needs strategic support to plan future services and facilities that respond to a growing population. Investing wisely to help sustain a vibrant and sustainable business and arts community is vital. As a councillor, my approach is to think long term to get best value for our public dollar, ensuring the needs of the people are adequately reflected in council policies. Professionally, as National Policy Director for a not for profit industry association, I work with governments and businesses developing transport, planning and sustainability solutions every day. I founded the Macedon Villages Volunteers, leading community missions attracting $1.25million value to our shire. Inappropriate development in Macedon was stopped by the community under my leadership. To find out more, visit www.mandimees.com
