 “I believe that the needs of the community should always carry preference and that having the platform as a councillor is exactly what is needed, to ensure that the community receives the attention that they rightfully deserve.” 

– Fiona Pelman

My priorities:

  • I will work with the municipality to find long-term solutions regarding the interruption of water supply in our ward. The badly affected infrastructure needs to be fixed and or upgraded.
  • I will ensure that all service delivery complaints and situations are reported in real time and keep the relevant department accountable. I will communicate any feedback to our community.
  • I will compile a database of our unemployed residents according to the skills that they have. I will approach our local businesses and ask them to give these residents a chance at employment through a “casual intake” program. This will assist them to gain experience while earning a wage.

 My priority is delivering services to the residents of Ward 21 Govan Mbeki.
