Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : September 10 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, September 11, 2008 5 COUNCIL ELECTIONS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Decide on who sets the agenda Burwood Park is a major attraction in the local government area. BURWOOD residents will elect a council on Saturday. We profile the lead candidates on each ticket, as they appear on the ballot. Residents will also vote in a referendum on whether to directly elect a mayor from 2012. Xin Chen (Ind): I am a happy father and husband who was born in China and migrated to Aust- ralia 19 years ago. For 10 years, I have managed a successful finance company in Burwood. My goals would be no parking meters -- council does not need to double tax residents. We need to improve infrastructure and to have good finances to make it happen. John Sidoti (Lib): I am married and have three kids under the age of 10, and have been living in the Inner West all my life. I recently sold my small business, Castel D'oro in Five Dock. The main issues are financial mismanage- ment, overdevelopment, planning powers and lack of basic services. We will show the community that we are not only good financial managers but compassionate. Chris Christogeorge (Ind): As a truly independent and experi- enced councillor living and work- ing in the area for many years (and with no party affiliation), I am passionate about focusing on traffic, parking, high-rise develop- ment issues, while retaining the character of our municipality. Jian Zheng (Unity): I was born in China and arrived in Australia over 19 years ago. I am happily married and have a daughter. I have served as a medical prac- titioner in Burwood for more than 14 years. I have been involved in lots of local community events and believe equal opportunity means giving support to marginalised groups in our community. John Faker (ALP): I was born in the area and have been on council for eight years. This is my fourth time as mayor. My goals are to ensure a new library is built with an auditorium that schools can use. We need to fight against any development in our residen- tial areas and to ensure council is financially sustainable. We also need to increase the pensioner rebate from $250 to $300. Christine Donayre (Greens):I live in Croydon Park with my husband and three children. I am the convenor of the NSW Greens multicultural committee and the Women's Network. I also sit on the executive committee of the Ethnic Communities Council of NSW. My goals include making council more accountable. Another goal will be guaranteeing that 10 per cent of all new unit developments be set aside for affordable housing. Lesley Furneaux-Cook (Burwood Community Voice): Raising a family in Burwood has been great but we are under more and more pressure. I am con- cerned about the State Govern- ment's Metro Strategy where Burwood will take the brunt of development. We need a traffic and parking plan. Too much money is spent on the town centre while some areas are ignored. David Weiley (Ind): I have lived, married, raised a family and worked locally as a high school maths teacher for more than 20 years. I was first elected to council in 2000 and it was an honour to serve for two years as mayor. My goal is to continue serving the community to the best of my ability.
