Press release 1st Nov 2022
I’m born here in Adelaide I have Greek heritage as my parents are Greek and through my life I have been active in both countries.
From a young boy I’ve been self employed as being self employed gives you the ability to live as you wish freely, as I thought prior 2020.
I have been involved within different Industries, I have been the owner of IT web hosting and internet solutions companies to Dance education businesses
entertainment agencies and hospitality venues.
The last 13 years, I have been living and running my businesses in Adelaide within the CBD
I have been interacting frequently with the Adelaide City Council the CBS and the authorities, through this experience I must confess that I am very disappointed.
On top of that, in 2020 we had this health crisis At our most vulnerable time local government
Adelaide needs to go a bit old school, it needs a traditional Mayer that does his homework that will voice his opinion, that takes initiative and can deal
with substantial issues and problems.
We are living in very strange times, from the research and information I have up to today we are in deep trouble.
About my fellow candidates, I am personally following your campaigns and I am disappointed as I have not seen any real initiative,
also I have been addressing serious matters to you, by email my website Facebook posts within my videos and on the 25th Oct 2022 I did address you in person, at the Belgian Beer Café Oostende function space we all attended and still have had no any response from you whatsoever.
Some of my priorities are:
1) Stop facial recognition cameras.
2) Protect us from the radiation we are exposed from the Cell Towers.
3) Boost our local businesses and try to keep them open
when the next Lockdown or something similar is requested.
4) Keep your Council Rates low.
5) Homeless: No more rough sleeping within 60 days in office.
6) Hindley Street will be perfectly safe within 12 months in office.
7) Stop rental E-scooters.
8) Stop Uber operating within the city.
9) Transparency, everything will be done in the open.
For those that could say but you will not have so much authority to accomplish some of your pledges my answer is simple,
I’m very resourceful, Where There is a Will There is a Way!
We need to reignite our local community, a local community that we can rely upon a local community
that will give us the opportunity to continue living our lives as human beans
My friends no empty promises, I am the only candidate that had the boots on the ground the last 13 years, if elected be sure that the next 4 years
will be very productive interesting and you will have plenty to talk about.
