Who is Dean Teasdale?

I’m 44 years together with my partner Trisha, we have five children and enjoy a busy and active life in this great area.

Trisha is a Registered Nurse, I am so proud of her contribution to the health of our community, particularly over the last two years.

My children play sport here at community clubs.

I work across the suburbs of Dakabin, Kallangur and Griffin daily.

What is your political persuasion?

I am not a member of any political party.

I am an independent candidate.

The major parties should play no real role in the council elections nothing should be put between council and residents and our lifestyles.

What is does the future of the region look like?

This is a question that I strike a lot from residents, and I am hearing concerns about the future of the maintenance and streetscapes throughout our region. To be realistic we need to look at increasing the maintenance of our streetscapes across the region.
Over the next few years of Council, there will be some significant growth in the region. Along with that will come the need to fill in some of the gaps in things like public transport links.
Improving the road network to work without the need for more traffic lights will be a priority.
It is important to keep supporting the still emerging community organisations which are the real-life blood of the community for decades to come. Getting more community facilities rolled out.
Over the next years, we can further grow our region as a positive, vibrant and exciting centre.

Why are you running for Division 7 Councillor?

I am standing up for our community to contribute, so it becomes a better place. I have a strong desire to ensure it’s a great place for our families to grow up that small businesses can be successful and that it’s a safe place to live and that we have a great lifestyle to enjoy here.
The community deserves a strong local voice to ensure we get our fair share and a council we can all be proud of. I want to see a council that excels in delivering the basics and an organisation that has leadership that is focused on that.

What policies are you supporting for Council?

  • Taking the pressure off the cost of living by keeping rates low, capping them to a maximum increase of CPI
  • Delivering value to residents through quality services
  • Working towards curbing more council debt
  • Cutting red tape and waste that unnecessarily burdens new homeowners
  • Providing real small business support to the creators and maintainers of local jobs
  • Protecting and enhancing lifestyles through practical consideration for the local environment
  • Restoring accountability, transparency and respect to the organisation of council

How are you funding your campaign?

Self-funded with the volunteer support of family, friends and members of the community.

How long would you serve as a Councillor for?

I’ll always be an active voice on local issues.

I’m 44 a long way from retirement age in any capacity.

I’d serve for as long as Division 7 keeps on re-electing me.
