– Anélma Steenekamp, Ward 3 DA candidate.

My priority is service delivery:

  • I will work with the municipality to ensure that service delivery structures are on a rotation schedule to service the entire ward over a monthly period.
  • I will fight for better sanitation in shatters, that there is provision of quality water, and that the potholes are filled.
  • I will assist our unemployed residents by using programs, with the help of local farmers and business partners to enable people to care and provide for themselves, and to learn a skill to apply for a job as a “skilled” worker.
  • I will always be available to listen to our residents and assist them to the best of my abilities.
  • I will find a way to solve current issues and work towards a long-term solution.

Together we can build a better future for our community.

A candidate for all residents of Ward 3
