Hi, I am Alison, an Independent candidate for the Buderim electorate in the Queensland State election on October 2020. I am deeply committed to fighting for State and Federal Government funding to ensure we have the necessary infrastructure to support our fast-growing community into the next century and beyond.

As your elected State Government representative, I will do everything in my power to build a solid foundation for the future while also nurturing and protecting our enviable Sunshine Coast lifestyle. Our unique and special Buderim community must continue to be safe, progressive, functional, wholesome and sustainable.

Please see my track record of success in initiating and delivering educational, sporting and key infrastructure projects in the space (see Achievements  page and my Projects page). My appointment to Senior Executive tourism and development leadership roles across more than 14 Queensland shires and cites has given me a bird's-eye perspective of visionary planning and intelligent governance. Elected as your area representative as Councillor then Maroochy Shire Mayor in 1997-2004 enabled me, through a broad cross-section of projects, to deliver for the community at a hands-on, practical level. My proven experience at broad levels of business and government puts me in a powerful position to lead as your State Government representative.

I am proudly an Honorary Senior Fellow at the University of the Sunshine Coast and my service to the community has also been recognised at both State and National levels with an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in 1994, and an Australia Day Award in 1996. My genuine and long-term commitment to our region in delivering major community infrastructure and employment over the past four decades is unparalleled.

It is vital that Buderim has industrious proven leadership to guarantee a prosperous future. I am committed to being open and inclusive to ensure all levels of government work together.

I have the knowledge, experience, and expertise to cut through the red tape and make things happen. I appreciate your valued support in the upcoming election.
