Why Rick wants to be your Councillor
Rick Williams Cares

REPRESENTING

Rick will hold and attend regular consultation meetings with local residents and community groups is an essential part of being a full-time Councillor who is genuinely willing to listen to people’s concerns, take those concerns on board, work to find a solution and implement it.

RESPONSIBLE

Rick will work to Stop waste of ratepayers dollars through closer scrutiny of contracts for works, unnecessary services and temporary fixes that are not permanent solutions to problems.

REAL SOLUTIONS to real problems, and being a Councillor who effectively mediates on behalf of local residents and with Council team members.

WHY DO I WANT TO BE COUNCILLOR

I feel that my Financial Planning expertise will help me tackle the waste of ratepayer money, and get a fairer slice of rate money distribution for Division 1.
I have the the tenacity to speak out on behalf of Division 1 constituents and win better results for our community rather than what is really needed.
I wish to grow innovative ideas in the community in our area to enhance our community and help our businesses.
