In my various roles in local government I have led the teams responsible for several successful solutions to some of the City’s most pressing, high profile challenges, incuding:
- The rollout of MyCiti, South Africa’s flagship metro bus service;
- Implementing a turnaround strategy for housing delivery that saw us exceed the City’s delivery target for the first time in 18 years, and
- Leading the court case to prevent Sanral from implementing e-tolling on Cape Town’s highways.
I am confident that I can lead our caucus in a manner that is productive, consultative, focussed on the delivery of the DA mandate for our citizens, and united in its purpose towards that delivery.
in 18 Approximate Months
I have led a turn-around strategy for housing that has seen delivery almost double and, as a result, enabled the city to exceed its housing target for the first time in 18 years.
Years Serving as a councillor
I first served as a ward councillor for the Woodstock area and was awarded Councillor of the Year in my second year for my service to the city. Since then have served in several senior roles in our local government.
