The Yankalilla District is a great place to live. Julie and I have had a home in Carrickalinga since 1977. Our children and grandchildren have grown up here. I have always been passionate about environmentally sustainable business and employment growth. The most satisfying years of my career were helping to create sustainable employment opportunities in small and regional towns. I believe my experience could assist the Council in identifying new employment opportunities in the region. Our District is known for its natural beauty and its cultural heritage. Protecting the character of this District and our quality of life while developing new opportunities is very important to me. I support opportunities where the community is fully engaged in the process of developing strategies for the future in collaboration with Council. I welcome the opportunity to represent you on the Council.

WETHERBY, Victoria Winifred

Please vote for me and support my vision for families, nature and the future. As a successful candidate I will promote family friendly initiatives, encourage more nature enhancing town planning and consider the short and long consequences in decisions and actions. I will lobby hard on behalf of local families for better access to existing services and to increase services. I will also advocate for more accessible green spaces while considering their sustainability. The first item on my agenda will be to finalise a permanent location for the Community Library and return its current location to its original purpose as a community entertainment space. I will also push for a more extensive program of bushfire fuel reduction on the verges of both Council and State Roads throughout our District. I embrace the large variety of circumstances and situations throughout our area and will consult accordingly upon election.

Growing up in a rural town in a large family I understand how important our 'village' is. My husband Pete and I love raising our two children Jack and Mexie here while enjoying every aspect of our beautiful surrounds and beaches. Our small business has enabled us to meet both residents and tourists alike, as well as bringing people together. We have been showered with support and I would love the opportunity to give back and serve this community as it is so close to my heart. I believe we have a strong, forward thinking council and it is a very exciting time to be on board! I have no personal agenda, except to support decisions which are beneficial to the community. Over the past 10 years I have served on various community groups including The NNYE Pageant, The Fleurieu Coast Business Association and The Yank Youth Advisory Committee.
