No. 1 – Merrill Halkerston Witt
No. 2 – Maria Judd
Maria is a committee member of the Rose Bay Residents’ Association. She has been working to redress the gaps created by increased population in Rose Bay including pollution on Rose Bay Beach from stormwater runoff, the need for more public infrastructure such as a new car park and a replacement community hall caused by the loss of the Rose Bay Uniting Church site, which Maria fought hard to heritage list. Maria has also campaigned against overdevelopment and its detrimental impact on traffic congestion, local character and heritage, particularly in Rose Bay. If elected she will focus on making improvements in all of these areas.
No. 3 – Claudia Cullen
Claudia’s record as the Residents First Councillor for Vaucluse is impressive. She instigated significant stormwater drainage improvements in Watsons Bay and Vaucluse and worked closely with the state government to stop raw untreated sewerage from being released into the ocean. Under her watch, residents have seen a remarkable improvement in the water quality of Camp Cove Beach. Claudia has also consistently advocated for better management of tourist numbers in Vaucluse and Watsons Bay, working closely with the local community to stop plans for a huge function centre at South Head. Claudia has always led the fight against overdevelopment and is strongly opposed to the draft Edgecliff Commerical Centre Urban Design and Planning Strategy, which proposes a significant uplift in development capacity that is not sustainable and is not supported by adequate new infrastructure.
