Over the next Council term, the overarching issue for North Sydney is the expected development and infrastructure growth.

It is about balance. Now more than ever North Sydney needs experienced Councillors within the local community that have commercial experience to negotiate on behalf of all residents, businesses and rate payers. We need a Council that will not only stand up for the community against the impact of State Government decisions, but with the ability and skill to negotiate fair and reasonable outcomes.
