Whitehorse Council should support locals and local businesses
I will advocate for Whitehorse businesses and residents to have a better chance to participate in Council projects and procurements.
If elected, I will work to strengthen section 3.7 of the 2018 Whitehorse Purchasing Policy. This provision refers to ‘buying local’ but does not make it clear for what, and how much. I will push for development projects to employ and engage locals for at least 15% of the value of the project. This is important to grow our local businesses and to give our locals a better chance to be employed or be trained up.
