3 years ago The North elected me to be their Councillor. I promised to be a Strong and Authentic Voice, Fight for a Fair Share for Corio, Norlane, North Shore, Lara, Anakie and the Rural North and try to get Geelong Council to care for more than just the CBD. I am passionate about the North, my community where I was born, educated and continue to live in.

I have worked tirelessly to represent the North and am proud of many achievements: Barwon Health North; Moving the Spirit of Tasmania from Melbourne to Geelong; $100 million to clean up Broderick road waste dump and winning the battle against the industrial Goat Farm in Lara. I am extremely proud of new community projects and services: Free Hard Waste Collection; Youth Council; $4 million local road safety improvements in Corio, Norlane and Lara; $1 million Corio Goldsworthy Athletics Track; Female friendly change rooms at Anakie, Stead Park, Lara United and Bell Park Sports Club; $2 million synthetic soccer pitch Leisure-time Centre; Stead Park Skate Park; Investment in Neighbourhood Centres in Cloverdale, Rosewall and Norlane Community Initiatives in Spruhan Ave; New lighting at North Shore Football Club, Lara Football Club, North Geelong Warriors, Geelong Soccer Club, Corio Soccer Club, Osborne Park and Evans Reserve Norlane, and $50,000 annual funding to Hoffman Walk.

If re-elected I will continue to fight for: jobs; lower rates; better services; appropriate development; our environment and safety in our community. Support: $1 billion Barwon Jail expansion and future 650 jobs; $1.7 million towards Geelong Emergency Food Centre in Norlane; Lara Sports Precinct Master Plan; Upgrades to netball and cricket at Shell Reserve and Windsor Park and advocate for Northern ARC and Lara Basketball Stadium. I have formed a strong united voice with Kylie Grzybek on Geelong Council and ask you to: Vote#1Aitken and Vote#2Grzybek. Email:[email protected] Phone:0417528810
