I will be standing for election in the Bendigo Council, in the Whipstick Ward.

I am seeking this role as an extension of my commitment to the Bendigo community. I would be working to take action on issues such as:

- Giving residents the power to make change in their community.
- Supporting our young people and families.
- Revitalising our recreation reserves and open spaces.
- Advocating for fair council spending across the whole of Greater Bendigo

I also intend to conduct a “listening campaign” to ensure that the concerns of the Whipstick Ward are reflected in my work as a councillor.


YOUR DONATION
Here's an idea of what your donation can enable me to do:

$10: Purchase coffee for 2 meetings with key community leaders

$20: Print 200 fliers for letterbox drops and street stalls

$50: Print 10 yard signs to publicise my campaign

$100: run an online campaign on Facebook for 2 weeks


ABOUT ME
I’ve lived and worked in the Long Gully and Eaglehawk communities for the last 15 years, and I have extensive experience in grassroots community work, especially with families and young people.

I’ve developed skills in listening to the community, helping people to carry out their ideas, and advocating for them in the wider community. I want to use these skills to serve the wider Whipstick ward.

With others, I have established a local community centre, a community garden, youth outdoor and dance programs, a toy library, networking initiatives, a food distribution program, and have brought over half a million dollars of funding into my community.

I worked at Eaglehawk Secondary College as a teacher and youth worker, and have been a community worker at St Matthew’s Church, Long Gully, for the last 12 years. I’ve also served on various committees, and I am the current President of the Violet Street Primary School school council.

I’m not a member of any political party, and will be an independent voice on council.

I am 43 years old, and have qualifications in teaching and youth work. I am married to Kylie, and we have 2 young sons.

Thanks to all of you for supporting my campaign so far. I've been getting some great media coverage and speaking to lots of people. It does feel a little 'unreal' though - it is difficult to know how my message is landing, but I'll just keep on keeping on!

If you know of people who may be able to pitch in $20 to support this campaign, please share this with them.

THanks again!

Dave
