TED IS SELF FUNDED

I believe true representation relies on independence in decision making.This is why I do not accept any financial donations from developers, unions, political parties or individuals. 


I have always personally funded my election campaigns to ensure I can represent all residents equally. 

I receive zero donations so I can remain uncompromised for you. 


Candidates’ donations will be available to view on the ECQ website.

PUBLIC NOTICE: As a participant in a Queensland local government election, I am required to give a disclosure return to the Electoral Commission of Queensland (ECQ) if I receive a gift or loan valued at $500 or more. I am required to give these returns within 7 business days of receipt, or within 24 hours if I receive the gift/loan within 7 business days before election day. These returns are available for public viewing on the ECQ's website, and will include all relevant details about the gift, including (but not limited to) your name and address. This is required by the Local Government Electoral Act 2011. Please visit www.ecq.qld.gov.au if you require further information about my obligations as an electoral participant.

ADHERING TO THE TOWN PLAN IS PARAMOUNT

I do not support increasing building density or heights on the Sunshine Coast. 
 
The Sunshine Coast needs controlled growth with sustainable development and preservation of green spaces. 
 
I know this is achieved, by strongly advocating on your behalf at planning meetings and voting against development applications that are contrary to the Town Plan. 
 
I believe that through strong controls in the Town Plan we can protect our rural, residential and urban environments. 

Let's keep our Sunshine Coast the family-friendly, lifestyle coast.

TED BELIEVES IN PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

Donna Neilson, Senior Facilitator for Peak Services on behalf of LGAQ presented Cr. Ted Hungerford with the award. 

“Cr. Ted is the sixth Local Government Councillor in Queensland and

the first and only Sunshine Coast Councillor to achieve this award”.

As your elected Councillor for Division 7, I take the responsibilities that come with this role very seriously. I’m always looking for ways to broaden my knowledge and sharpen my skills to enable me to serve our community better.


This course was designed specifically for Queensland elected members who wanted a deeper understanding of the roles and responsibilities of their job. The course contained 14 modules covering planning legislation, governance, asset management, budgeting, finance management, and human resource management just to name a few.


Local Government Councillor roles have become increasingly complex and given the recent corruption scandals that have tarnished some Councils in Queensland, I will be encouraging colleagues to undertake the same course for the new Sunshine Coast Council if

re-elected in 2020.

 

ISSUES & CONCERNS

I have always voted to support my local community.

Community comes first, every time, in Council Chambers.

News Article-Paid parking expanded acros

TED OPPOSES

PAID PARKING EXPANSION

Paid parking is not wanted by 84% of the Community. Ted voted against a motion to have paid parking expanded across the Sunshine Coast.  Unfortunately only 2 other Councillors voted with the community and Ted to oppose paid parking in our streets.

Twin Waters West opposed by Community due to flooding not conforming to town plan

TED SUPPORTS TWIN WATERS WEST COMMUNITY 

Environmental impacts on protected species and not conforming to the Town Plan were the main reasons why Councillor Ted Hungerford voted with the Community to oppose this development. Only 2 other Councillors voted with Ted to support the Twin Waters Community.

Ted gets 7 of 8 Councillors to vote with Community and reject large shopping centre

LOCAL BUSINESS COMMUNITY SUPPORTED

Councillor Ted convinced 6 fellow Councillors to support his Community and oppose Woolworths being built in North Buderim. Local businesses and the Community congratulated Ted on this win for the Community.

News Article-Sand mine refused after 3 h

TED WINS AND SAND MINE IS REFUSED BY COUNCIL

Ted spearheaded a heated, emotional, three-hour debate to convince his fellow Councillors that a sand mine was not good for the Community or the environment. Ted won, the Community won and the sand mine was refused by Council.

Environment not considered by 6 Councillors when they voted for dense, high development Sekisui

THE ENVIRONMENT COMES BEFORE DEVELOPMENT

Ted voted with the community to protect the beaches of Yaroomba from over development. The proposed development is outside of the the Town Plan and Council received 7000 objections from the Community. Ted voted with 4 other Councillors to uphold the Town Plan.

Verge gardens welcomed by Councillor Ted.

TED ENDORSES VERGE GARDEN SELF ASSESSIBLE GUIDELINES

Verge gardens build communities through sharing sustainable living practices, encouraging locally grown produce and add to the visual appeal and character of a neighbourhood. Residents' Associations & Garden Clubs were consulted to develop these guidelines.
