Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : August 27 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, August 28, 2008 7 COUNCIL ELECTIONS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Candidates state their case Michael Megna (Liberal): It takes vision, hard work and a sound financial understanding to achieve the results our com- munity expects. As mayor of Drummoyne for six years, I have a long and proud history of introducing lifestyle- changing policies in seniors, youth, cultural events, such as Ferragosto, public transport and the environment. I created heri- tage and conservation areas to stop overdevelopment which was adding a burden to our roads and traffic. Only the Liberals can stop Labor's unhealthy relationship with developers. We do not seek nor will we accept political do- nations from developers. David Allen (Independent): Ia m an Australian business consult- ant, with government and private experience in Europe, Asia, rural and metropolitan Australia. I teach English, IT and maths. And I am an ASX company monitor and support our local languages and cultures. I stand for economic, social and environmental sustainability. Rates should reflect services provided and we can take pride in our Australian heritage. Modern water and sewage man- agement technology is essential. Free public transport would save billions of trade dollars yearly and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Pauline Tyrrell (The Greens): As a Greens mayor, I will be a strong community advocate who does not take donations from developers. I will act on climate change, support the provision of affordable housing and represent residents in an honest and inde- pendent way. I want to see our parks cleaned up, more trees planted and better public transport. I was a Canada Bay Greens councillor from 2000 and I was deputy mayor from 2002 to 2004. I achieved residents' rights to address council meetings and bet- ter clean-ups of Rhodes and Break- fast Point developments, rain- water tanks for new buildings and expanded bushcare. Jeanette O'Hara (Community First): I feel I can be there for the community and am always avail- able to help with what is within my power. I have been a resident of Con- cord for 58 years, starting my working life at 14 years of age at Bowens at North Strathfield. Over the years I worked as a postal assistant at North Strathfield post office. I have been a councillor for 13 years, three of those as deputy mayor. I enjoy community work. You meet hard-working people hoping to make a difference. I am a member of various committees and community or- ganisations including Meals on Wheels. Michael Cantali (Independent): I have many years' experience rep- resenting the people on council and have a proven track record of integrity and honesty. I am a chartered professional engineer and have post-graduate studies in project management and as a committed activist I have supported and lobbied for local community bodies and individual residents. I have the experience and quali- fications to do the job. An independent mayor has no obligation to a political party, only to the people. I don't take political donations from any party or developers. I have fought and am constantly fighting for locals' rights. Angelo Tsirekas (Labor): The sustainability of our environment and community is of critical im- portance. I know climate change is one of the most serious challenges facing us and I am committed to leading our local response to tackling it. I am also committed to nurtur- ing our fantastic local community. One of the things that strikes me when I talk to locals is that they really value our fantastic build- ings, parks, gardens and streets. I believe we can achieve an appropriate balance between new development and heritage conser- vation without compromising the things residents, including my- self, know and love.
