Liberal Party candidates for Narrabeen ward
Local Government Election 2017
Neil Stronach, Vicky McGahey and Rory Amon
Liberal Party candidates for Narrabeen wardFrom North Head to Barrenjoey Lighthouse, to Garigal National Park, we call the most beautiful part of Sydney home. We need to keep it that way.
Northern Beaches Council is a $500 million a year organisation with $5 billion of assets. It needs to be run properly. The Independents on Warringah Council, tried to increase rates by 26%, instead of cutting wasteful expenditure. If they’re elected to this Council, they will do the same to residents of the former Pittwater Council. Liberals have a philosophical foundation in lower rates and smaller government.
A vote for the Liberal Party is a vote for lower rates, better roads and public transport, and no overdevelopment. A vote for the Independents, Labor or the Greens, is a vote for higher rates, no new roads or public transport and overdevelopment.
