I have made my home on the Northern Tablelands, as I know it is a great place to live and work. As a child and teenager I lived in rural and remote communities and understand the distances people travel to do everyday things, like send your kids to school, or see a GP.
I run a small business, and have seen how little the NSW Liberal-National Government has done to support small business. I want to see thriving main streets across the Northern Tablelands - whether it be in Walcha, Moree, Guyra, Inverell, Glen Innes Warialda, Bingara, Uralla or Armidale. Small businesses are an economic powerhouse to our local regional communities.
I was a registered nurse, with 35 years experience, including a number of years in intensive care in Australia and overseas. I have experienced first hand the deterioration of health care services in the Northern Tablelands, and believe that no matter where you live, a post code should NOT determine your health outcomes.
We need a fresh start for NSW, and we definitely a fresh start for the Northern Tablelands.
