Val Kaigg wants to show the people she is more committed than ever to represent them on council.COUNCIL contender Val Kaigg hopes to gain a seat on the City of Busselton and will run in the election next month.
It will be the fourth time Ms Kaigg has nominated and said she received great support in previous elections having just missed out on a seat.
Ms Kaigg wants to show the people who voted for her that she is more committed than ever to represent them on council.
“I can listen to what the community are after, ask the hard questions and stand up for a group that want a change and voice their opinion,” she said.
“I cannot say if that would change anything because council is about teamwork but I’m not afraid to be a representative for those people.”
Having a background in local government Ms Kaigg understood the role of councillors was teamwork and public consultation.
“Plans have been developed over a period of time which does take time,” she said.
“It’s a matter of implementing the things that have been decided on with community and interest groups.”
Ms Kaigg said she would like to be part of the team that brings the new Busselton foreshore precinct into fruition.
While she thinks the foreshore redevelopment is superb she doesn’t want to see the city change too much.
“Most of our visitors are repeat visitors from metropolitan areas I would hate for us to create what they are coming from because then there would be no value,” she said.
“We were a sleepy town once and were just a tourism industry, but now we have our own residential base and can sustain our own economy.
“People come here for a reason and I don’t want to see the reason they have come here or the beautiful environment and friendly network change too much.”
In addition to her experience working for local government Ms Kaigg has also been involved with community sporting groups.
In the year 2000 she was recognised for her involvement with sporting clubs and received an Australian sports award.
She has also been inducted into the Australian softball hall of fame and has two life memberships with sporting clubs.
“I have always been around the sporting industry,” she said.
