Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : September 10 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, September 11, 2008 7 COUNCIL ELECTIONS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Just who are the candidates? The war memorial at Enfield is at the gateway to Strathfield. Strathfield Council residents will go to the polls on Saturday. Here we profile the lead candidates on each ticket, in the order they appear on the ballot. Paul Barron (Ind): My goal for council is for better community. I have been living in the area for nine years and my three boys went to St Pat's College. I go to St Joseph's Church in Enfield and I believe it is nice to give something back to the community. Thuc Thai (Ind): I will be your voice in our community. I will stand up for what the community thinks and will not be distracted by party politics. By living in Strathfield, I know many of the issues first-hand. I will oppose greed and will stand for a caring community by listening. Danny Lim (Ind): I have lived in Strathfield for 31 years and have campaigned against the council for the last four years. My Independent Smart Team is com- mitted to cleaning up council, bringing back the smile, openness, transparency, accountability and morality. Doing it for future gen- erations by giving them the same climate, environment and opportunities that our parents and grandparents gave us. Bill Carney (Lib): I'm proud to have been mayor for 21/2 years, after having rebuilt council and ensured the council's financial sustainability (one of only two sustainable councils in the Inner West). We also increased council services and involved the com- munity in the decision-making process. I hope to be re-elected to continue to be a responsible voice and approach to council's admin- istration and services. I will also fight the Labor State Government and its unfair planning laws. Keith Kwon (ALP): I have served as a councillor for the past four years and live and work locally. I am a practising solicitor and a father of two young chil- dren. My goal is open, accountable local government and an adminis- tration that provides the best possible basic services our com- munity demands and deserves. Matthew Blackmore (Ind): We need local people on the council who are not using our council as a stepping stone to Macquarie St. My view is to keep things basic, listen to the concerns of the resi- dents and represent them at coun- cil meetings. Also to keep our footpaths, parks and roads main- tained and enforce strict manage- ment of council funds to make sure our rates are kept low. Chuan Ren (Unity): The suc- cessful local government is the essential guarantee for the pros- perity and harmony of our country. The prosperity and har- mony of the local community depends on the hard work of the local government. The essential thing to build up harmonious community is to respect each other no matter where he or she originally comes from. Julian Rice, (Ind): I am an experienced high school teacher and educational and financial ad- ministrator. I was born in Homebush and live in South Strathfield with my family. My family settled in Strathfield in 1840. I have taught in PNG, California and Central Australia. I firmly believe that we need a return to open, rational, non- political debate but being very aware of our obligations to others and our environment.
