the campaign trail

I’ve had a terrific time out in the community campaigning for re-election. It’s been a privilege to serve the community and one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. I’ve had a tremendous amount of positive feedback from community members and great support from local traders too.

I’ve been handing out my flyer in local townships and I must say I’ve had a great response. By now you should have received my flyer, one way or another but just in case you haven’t here it is…

Samantha lives with her partner and their young son in Selby and is familiar with the issues facing residents of the urban fringe and rural townships.

“It has been a privilege to serve the community. I look forward to working hard to make Lyster an even better place to live. It’s time to build on my achievements, see projects through to completion like the Monbulk Pool and the Children’s Hub.”

Samantha has:
· Saved Sherbrooke Children’s Centre and long day care in the Dandenong Ranges
· Introduced the Green Waste Wheelie Bin service
· Fought for the redevelopment of the Monbulk Pool
· Provided a sensible and pragmatic approach to protecting our unique environment
· Renewed council’s investment in early childhood services
· Stopped inappropriate high density development in Belgrave and Tecoma townships
· Secured $12.2 million dollars in capital works for the local community of Lyster

Samantha will:
· Fight for better public transport and commuter parking
· Campaign for a permanent increase in local police presence
· Encourage home grown, small business
· Fight for more funding to tackle the weed crisis
· Create shared pathways for walking and cycling to link our townships and communities
· Support innovation and value added businesses
· Continue the fight for 50 kph zones through our towns
· Continue to ensure adequate funding for roads in the Lyster Ward

I offer sensible, balanced decision making and stand for transparent, hard working, cooperative grass roots democracy.
