No. 1 – Claudia Cullen
Claudia is a conservative with a proven track record defending the rights and interest of the Woollahra community. She is concerned that local councillors representing major political parties are forced to put State and Federal agendas above the interest of residents which will drive overdevelopment in the area. The State Government’s agenda to increase population density means high rise developments in Double Bay. This will change its unique character and put additional strain on our infrastructure, roads, traffic, public transport and our already oversubscribed schools and child care. State Government also plans to increase tourism and commercialisation in Watsons Bay. This already popular destination is bursting at the seams and locals don’t support their scheme to turn the bay into an international wedding venue destination. Claudia also opposes expansion plans for the mega marina in Rose Bay. Claudia brings an independent voice of reason to the council without political affiliations, she puts residents interest first. During Claudia’s previous term as a Woollahra Councillor she actively advocated and pursued many major projects including the Watsons Bay Baths, the creation of libraries in both Double Bay and the Watsons Bay Tea Gardens, the stormwater trap to remove pollution from Camp Cove Beach, the upgrade of the Robertson Park Play equipment and many major infrastructure upgrades. Her track record demonstrates her integrity and passion for the community.
