The latest Division 10 candidate for the upcoming Sunshine Coast Council elections is Matthew Filippi whose campaign slogan is: ‘A new voice for Division 10’.

“I’m asking to be your community representative and work towards issues such as local employment, building our economy, rejuvenating Nambour and the hinterland towns, housing affordability, and community safety. I will work to ensure that Council decisions are based on integrity, transparency, and value,” he said.

“As the fastest growing area in Queensland, the Sunshine Coast is going through significant change and our population is predicted to almost double by 2040. However, I have some concerns about over development. The community and Council need to take the lead with town planning and think strategically about how we want to design our community, our suburbs and our green spaces. I hear a lot of concerns that developers are getting it all their own way. The new town plan to be decided by the incoming Council will be a critical blueprint for the future of the Sunshine Coast.”

The local government elections will be held on Saturday 28 March. All Division 10 candidates will be invited to meet and greet the community when YADCA hosts a public forum before the election. Details will be announced soon.
