6 Sun Newspapers WEDNESDAY, August 7, 2013. General News << SUNNewspapers There was double big cheque joy when NAPCAN and Dragons Abreast NT both received $1009 thanks to an event held by Bendigo Bank and Engineers Australia. The Healthy, Wealthy and Wise forum for women raised the cash by auctioning off donated goods. Lesley Taylor of NAPCAN receives the cheque from Bendigo Banks Heather Jensen. McAdie tells us why he fits spot THE fourth person to throw their hat into the ring for the role of alderman on Litchfield council has told Sun Newspapers why he thinks he fits the bill. Mark McAdie has lived in the NT for 44 years and been a resident of Litchfield Council for 18 years. He served with the NT Police Force for 36 years. Mr McAdie said he wants to serve his community. I already do so through membership and service to a range of community organisations, he said. I believe in economical, transparent and responsive local government and will only make promises I know I can keep. They are to work hard to preserve the rural lifestyle so cherished by the residents, and to listen to and fairly represent the views of Central Ward residents to Litchfield Council. Mr McAdie said he has a range of skills and knowledge gained through nearly 40 years of public service which will allow him to contribute to the council. I believe the role of councillor in local government is to represent the views of the ward residents on council. My own views are not as important as those of the residents of the ward who I represent, he said. Polling takes place Saturday. The federal election has now been announced.
