"Another Councillor in from ward is actually raising a motion at this weeks council meeting. She rang me to discuss after the initial contact I made with Councillors and listened to what I had to say. Tim, can I assume to will be supporting it?"

"Look at the Oaklands Crossing project as a perfect example of how this can be done right. The DPTI preferred option was a great big Taj Mahal of an overpass dominating the area and visible for large distances in each direction, but the City of…"

"Tim, we're talking about dirt trails that already exist and are only asking that one section designated "walkers only" be re-designated to allow cyclists, and that the unfriendly gate at the bottom of Burnell Drive be removed."

"Tim, I am not asking for a sealed path. I am just asking my local rep how we can get a small section of walking only trail converted to cycling trail? Nothing more, nothing less. For the record I contacted all Councillors, I have the email support…"

"Folks, "Leading" in council is slow, consultative and technical. Administration, and many Councilors, would love to find a feasible way to connect the hills, through Belair, to the plains with a sealed pathway. However (unlike Unley) we…"

"Perception! The less people know about something, the least correct their perception usually is. In this case I stand corrected. What I wrote has been my experience, both in AU & overseas."

"Thanks for your thoughts, Wayne,  Despite our wishes, we can't just build infrastructure on DPTI roads. However the roundabout is actually specifically because of the ongoing advocacy from both Council generally, and me personally.…"

"Tim, perception?! You might as well wrote "I don't care". My perception of politicians and bureaucrats who shift blame usually do so for that reason; I don't care (to make an effort). Isn't part of local council's role…"

"How about lead it? Don't just wait for someone else to present a motion that you can vote for. I don't think the excellent work that the City of Unley is doing on cycling was achieved by people saying "not me.""

I ride with the THOP guys, and am a big supporter of cycling.

I have been the Elected Councillor for The Park Ward in Mitcham Council for the past 2 years, and am standing again in the current election.

In that time, I've fought for and won a new Blackwood Masterplan. I'll continue to fight to ensure Glenalta, Hawthorndene, Belair and surrounding suburbs are not forgotten by Mitcham Council, and to ensure that the Blackwood and Belair townships receive much-needed improvements to services and infrastructure.

I'll also work to protect the Mitcham Hills from bushfire risk, reduce council rates, revitalise Blackwood, and protect our environment and open spaces.

I'm a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. I have the skills and background to get the best from Council for the Mitcham Hills.

Hi Tim, any chance you could comment on the council's input into the Blackwood roundabout redevelopment and specifically what contributions you (as a big supporter of cycling) have been making on the issue?

I'm sure the rate paying businesses of the area would appreciate a design that won't make it harder for people to get around and spend money there.
