FRIDAY AUGUST 19 2016 NEWS 13 V1 - CAVE01Z01MA months has probably been the most productive 12 months Ive had as a member of the parliament, she said. Party politics can be a big distraction from what you are actually meant to be doing. It was not the smoothest exit Ms Lambley was dismissed from cabinet in February last year and she quit the party about four months afterwards. I dont know whether peo ple will see me in a negative or positive light, she said. Whether they will see me as a defector. I hope people see me as someone who stood up for certain values, and the values I try to stand for are honesty and integrity and respect. Among Ms Lambleys key policies are delivering night time youth services seven nights a week and supporting a fracking moratorium until the community is satisfied it will not harm water safety. She said her vision of nighttime youth services had similarities to those in place before CLP came to power. I think there will still be quite a few people around from just a few years ago that know how night time youth services should operate in town, Ms Lambley said. The Social Work graduate first came to town in 1994. FORMER two-term Alice Springs councillor Jane Clark has announced she will stand as an independent candidate for the seat of Braitling. Ms Clark will be attempting to oust Chief Minister Adam Giles, who currently holds the seat, during the upcoming August 27 NT elections. With a background in IT, and a sizeable recovery period ahead after an operation, Ms Clark has decided to put together a series of podcasts to let voters know just what she represents. I just thought, well, whats the most effective way to still Robyn Lambley says she has got her focus right when it comes to politics. Picture: HANNAH MILLERICK Youth services agenda THESE days, Robyn Lambley knows just where to focus her energy. Not on party politics, the independent candidate for Araluen said. Ms Lambleys decision to break away from the Country Liberal Party last year has proven to be quite liberating. I think that the last 12 Independents podcast plan takes aim at Giles be a part of the debate, and I came up with the idea of podcasting, Ms Clark said. If people are thinking about the different candidates, at least there is a way for people to find out more about me. With a long family history tied to the Territory, Ms Clark feels she has the long view of things that have happened around Alice Springs and an appreciation of the cycles that can occur. From time to time everyone flares up and gets terribly worried about the situation in town, Ms Clark said. Id really like to find a way to cut through and see if we can actually come up with a better way of dealing with things.
