Archie Klaas, Ward 5 DA candidate

My priorities:

Service delivery: I will work closely with the municipality to ensure that every resident receives only the best services. I will follow up on all complaints that have been reported, and give our residents feedback with the outcome.

Illegal dumping and sewage: These are serious problems in our area. I will create awareness and play visuals on the impact of blocked sewage pipes, and what can be dumped where. I will monitor hotspots and manage them. I will fight to turn dumping spots into green areas for recreational activities.

Housing: I will do oversight on the housing database and keep burning issues as standing items on the ward agenda until they are resolved.

Health care and safety: I will fight for better health care at the Hermanus Clinic where sick people must return without being helped. I will fight for the Mobile Police Station to be provided for a space in the ward to ensure more visibility in our fight against crime.
