GRIFFIN, Mark Anthony

If elected I am a resolute advocate for rate capping and working within Mitchams current income stream. With no new multi million dollar loans .Responsible future budgeting .Reducing debt not core essential services. Working effectively yet creatively together getting more achieved within our means. With the pending community land management plan I strongly support formal and informal sporting clubs and schools that use council reserves and ovals and they all should be encouraged and supported with long term leases ensuring security in tenure. Enabling schools and clubs to invest in their infrastructure long term. Turning disused council reserves into tree nurseries for future tree replacement programmes enabling mature specimens to be planted as required. Good street trees under pin property value and the environment. These are but a few of many issues that need addressing ,as councillor I will respond and support all residents of Gault.

KING, Jack

If elected as a councillor, I would advocate rate cuts. I think it's important in this coronavirus environment that ratepayers' money is spent only on essential requirements. The three R's need to be looked at. I believe that the council should focus on roads, rates and rubbish. I believe in the encouragement of small business, a healthy happy community, encouraging voluntary work, reasonable development and encouraging community participation. The most important current matter is the health and safety of our community. We need to monitor and advise the elderly wherever they are living, in view of the damaging potential shown interstate. South Australia has been fortunate in its management of the virus, yet there is still a long journey ahead. As an organizer of youth events, I believe that we should be encouraging more events in our community halls, giving our youth a sense of community. Jack.kingcouncil@gmail.com
