My principles

I follow these guiding principles:

  • I will be accountable – answerable to residents and not to a political party
  • I will work in the open – honestly and transparently – and give reasons for my decisions
  • I will offer community leadership
  • I will be positive, solution-focussed and forward thinking
  • I will be a convener and will facilitate open, honest and unrushed conversations
  • I will support good ideas and take practical action regardless of the party affiliation of those sponsoring them
  • I will be inclusive and respectful of differences and seek to develop empathy for different viewpoints
  • I will be prepared to compromise on certain issues to achieve the best outcomes for the whole community
  • I will be creative and use others’ skills and ideas to do stuff differently and better
  • I will embrace technology where appropriate to get stuff done.

“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.” Margaret Wheatley
