Malcolm Anngow Independent candidate for the City Council
Mosgiel Taieri Ward.
I have lived in Mosgiel 34 years. Over the last 3 years I have disagreed with some of the current City Council decisions, processes and policies. Rather than continue to be disillusioned with what has happened at the Council I have decided to put myself up for election.
I would like to see in the new term the Council concentrate on the following.
- Increase transparency with the community.
- Listen and act more on the views of the community.
- Repayment of Council debt.
- Keep any rates rise to a minimum.
- Increase efficiencies in all areas of Council.
- Continue to spend on upgrading the core essential services of drainage, water services, sewerage and roading.
- Require the CEO to review the policies and guidelines for acceptable management spending.
- Make some future cutbacks in new projects classed as “discretionary spending” in favour of debt repayment and minimising rate increases.
- Improve relationships with the business and the education communities.
- Consolidate and expand our tourism industry and improve the Council relationships with all associated in the tourism industry.
- Working smarter in all areas making the City a better place to live.
The incoming new Council has some challenges ahead but I am sure with some concerted efforts it can get the expenditure and debt levels reduced to more comfortable and acceptable levels. As an independent candidate I can serve the community best as I see fit and I will not be involved in any alliance or group voting. My experience in business and industry organisations will give me the necessary skills to carry out the role as an independent Councillor in an efficient and valuable manner.
