"Motorcycle representation on RAC Council Election - 2016
Hi All (especially the RAC members among you)
I have nominated once again for a position on the Royal Automobile Club of Western Australia Council (RACWA).
I firmly believe that I can contribute positively to the growth of the RACWA in the areas that I have worked with that organisation over many years - to improve the safety of the most vulnerable road users in our community namely pedestrians, cyclists and particularly motorcycle and scooter riders.
I remain committed to actively assisting and supporting all riders and pedestrians. I have accumulated many years’ knowledge and experience and will continue to work for rider safety and sensible, practical legislation and to improve roads and roadsides for all vulnerable road users. Those amongst you who know me personally can testify to that however, I NEED your support to achieve this.
There are currently 15 sitting councillors on the RACWA Council. This election, there are 7 candidates standing for the 4 available positions.
You can vote for 1 only or up to four candidates and I would sincerely appreciate your support by placing an 'X' alongside my name (not a tick). As 4 incumbent RAC councillors are re-nominating, my best chance of success is for my supporters to vote for me only.
RACWA members will be receiving their copy of the RACWA Horizons Magazine very soon in which the RACWA Council Voting Ballot Form will be included.
Voting is for RAC members only and can only be done by using the form in the Horizons Magazine, so please do not throw your magazine out until you have voted.
The RAC is a very Influential organisation that can do a lot more for us and with your support I will work to that end.
Again, I would sincerely appreciate your support and sharing your personal recommendation to your friends, family & neighbours.
