Traffic Light System:
In response to the Traffic Light rating system for candidates that has recently been distributed:
My responses to any questions asked were not taken into account for my rating and I was awarded a red light by default with no interview.
Because of this I encourage voters to challenge the veracity of this voting guide, and make your own informed decisions of the running candidates.
I have always acted with honesty and integrity and if elected it will be an honor to be able to serve my
community in the same way.
Thank you for your time.
Covid 19 Postal Delays:
Due to the possibility of postal delays caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic, I would recommend all voters turn their votes in as early as possible.
