SINGLETON has so much potential and opportunity for growth and Hollee Diemar-Jenkins wants to be involved in driving the town’s future.
This is why she has stepped forward as a candidate in the September 8 local government election.
Hollee moved to Singleton in 1974 and she has wonderful childhood memories of community events such as the Wine and Rose Festival, concerts and discos for the town’s young people.
With a 14-year-old daughter and 10 year-old son, she believes there could be much more done to drive activities for this age group.
She would like to see more community events and more use of public buildings such as the Civic Centre and Youth Venue for community celebrations.
Away from the social aspects and Hollee is far more serious.
She describes Singleton’s well documented housing crisis as a housing fatality that should have been addressed years ago.
She is also a firm believer of local jobs for local people and says council has a role to play to address the skills shortage.
As for handling conflict, Hollee is the operations manager at RIG Installations and says she is accustomed to making tough decisions and overcoming obstacles.
“I am here for the long haul, I am a long term resident and I want to give back to a community that I am very passionate about,” Hollee said.
