In spite of on again off again showers locals came down to tell Hilton Ward Candidate Sam Wainwright about what is important to their community.
It is important to really listen to people. When you're put in a position of elected responsibility you have to make sure every one gets a say and you consult with the broadest range of people possible. - Sam Wainwright
Sam bought an ideas board down to the park where he wrote the ideas locals gave him about how to improve the community. Along with surveys and door to door consulting with locals Sam hopes all locals feel free to approach him with a confidence they will be taken seriously.
We need to increase democracy not just in a formal way but encourage all people to be involved and create the forums for them to do so - Sam Wainwright
