This sponsored post is brought to you by Wayne Thorley.
Murray Bridge mayoral candidate Wayne Thorley is working towards making our community more livable as we grow.
He is open and honest and believes in:
Transparent decision-making with regular consultation
Continuing the council’s strategic objectives under the vision of “thriving communities”
Supporting our cultural diversity and artistic endeavours to further enrich our community
Keeping rates at current levels while balancing the council’s business plans
Safer roads, including by expanding footpaths at Murray Bridge East and lobbying for a heavy transport bypass away from our residential areas
Enhancing our green spaces and sporting facilities
Spending the past four years on the council, and three as Deputy Mayor, have given him valuable insights into the council’s operations, Wayne says.
“I live on our farming property at Jervois, in the Rural City of Murray Bridge, with my wife Angela,” he says.
“I have had past experience in leadership roles as president, active participant and advocate for irrigators in the reform of the Lower Murray irrigation areas; president of the Lower Murray LAP; a CFS brigade captain and group officer; vice president of the South Australian CFS Volunteer Association; and as a SAFECOM board member.
“I have been a councillor for four years, and have strived to keep my commitments from the last election: to keep council rates affordable, make council roads safer, and work collectively for the betterment of our community.
“In that time I have sat on the council’s audit and risk committee, been a member of the strategic development committee, and Deputy Mayor for three years.
“Highlights of this time have been continued improvement to the amenity of our communities, including redevelopment of Sturt Reserve, beautification of town entrances including Swanport Road and the extension to the Adelaide Road linear park, modernisation and expansion of the Lerwin Nursing Home and sealing of busy rural roads.”
