ROB Askew has unfinished business he wants to complete with another term on Warrnambool City Council.
He has cited major redevelopment of the airport and upgrading the harbour precinct as priorities.
However, he won’t be pushing specific issues.
“I’m not into self-promotion and don’t have any agenda,” he said.
“I just like to work for the benefit of the city and its people. I find it is more effective to work behind the scenes and to listen and act on people’s concerns.
“The proposed extensions at the airport will be an exciting development for the city and the harbour works will improve safety and accessibility for off-shore fishermen.”
After completing his first four-year term, Cr Askew said he was keen to follow through on major projects and said he enjoyed working with councillors and staff.
“I believe I bring stable and mature thought processes to council decisions and I look forward to contributing to the continued growth and prosperity of the entire municipality.”
The local businessman secured the highest number of first-preference votes at the 2008 election. He has been a Lions club member for 45 years, is a life member and former president of Warrnambool Surf Life Saving Club and has been treasurer of Warrnambool Kayak Club for 12 years.
