AMR Shire council candidate Robert McDonald says it's time for council to open the doors and become more open with the community.

AMR Shire council candidate Robert McDonald says it's time for council to open the doors and become more open with the community.

I have 30 years Construction Project and Facilities Management experience having worked in large corporate and small local environments.

I have managed large budgets and work packages and I now own and operate a small business within the Augusta Margaret River Shire.

I have previously served as a Councillor in the Shire of Exmouth. My past has required me to work closely and negotiate with State and Local Governments, Community groups, local residents and Traditional owners to achieve mutual outcomes and to mitigate impacts.

This experience places me well to represent our community and achieve our agreed objectives.

I feel that the Council is currently closed for business in relation to regional development and growth of small business.

I feel that the Council is currently closed for business... I frequently hear from residents that the Shire is removed and behind closed doors, I hope to open those doors and create a more open environment.

I frequently hear from residents that the Shire is removed and behind closed doors, I hope to open those doors and create a more open environment.

I believe that our region's businesses should be able to feel confident in their futures and provided opportunity to grow in a sustainable environment where 'red tape' is used to promote positive outcomes rather than hinder growth

I have no particular incident or issue that has sparked my decision to nominate for this election, however I wish to bring a very centre-line decision-making position.

I'm neither heavy left nor right, and have no agenda.

I will make decisions at the time based on information provided and researched by myself.

I love our location and environment here in the Augusta Margaret River region.

The coast line and forests are fantastic and we all should enjoy them and share them with visitors in a managed approach.

I also love good food, wine and beer so I'm in a heaven on earth.
