I have a Military, Humanitarian Aid and small business owner background. DCC needs to stop rates increases, get back to basics and repair, replace, maintain infrastructure and not rush into large projects.
Beautify the harbour but no more, encourage investors. Pay down existing debt.
Car parking needs expansion upwards on existing car parks but increased safe pedestrianisation needs to be investigated.
Public transport needs a very hard look.
My career has always been focused on getting the job done by forming a team, putting people first and acting on what the people actually want.
