I am an active supporter of numerous local volunteer organisations and I am proud to live in one of the most sustainable homes in Hornsby Shire.  My priorities for the current term include:

  • Democracy through transparent, fair decision-making and resource distribution, monitored by performance surveys.
  • Sustainability, including work to improve Berowra Creek water quality. We should acknowledge global warming and implement intelligent planning to combat it. We should also lobby for improvements to public transport and high density planning and design.
  • Improvements to facilities such as footpaths, shaded playgrounds, skate parks, cycle ways, indoor community areas, libraries, public pools, ovals and community gardens. I would like to see a start to projects such as Berowra Pool and Storey Park Community Centre.

Background:

  • Mick’s grandchildren are fifth-generation Berowra residents and the entire family is highly involved in the community, through numerous sporting, cultural and education groups.
  • He is employed as a team leader in community services, undertaking local conservation projects. Mick is experienced in construction, mechanical repairs and sports, while he has an accompanying degree, three diplomas and trade certificates.

Mick is a member of the Alternative Technology Association and Council’s Bushland Management  Advisory Committee, as well as chairperson of the Berowra and District Community Association. He coaches boxing at Hornsby PCYC, as well as taekwondo and self-defence.
