It has been five years since the last local government elections in NSW, and three new female candidates are looking to bring in fresh ideas at this year’s Cowra Council election.

Donna Peters, Rebecca Morgan and Sharon D’Elboux will each be throwing their hats in the ring for the September 4 election, and each of them are hoping to give Cowra Council a freshen up.

Donna was the first person to publicly announce their candidacy for this year’s election. Her three main focuses are to energise Macquarie Street, promote tourism and jobs, and support local residents and businesses.

She said she wants to be a part of Cowra’s “master plan”. “I want to see our council build for own shire’s future and plan for population growth from the city to the country,” she said.

“We have seen during COVID that there has already been a major influx of people relocating from the city to the country, and we need to be able to accommodate them.”

“I want to make Cowra a more vibrant place to live.”

Rebecca Morgan said she wants to add more diversity to Cowra Council.

“If not me, then who?” she said.

“I want to give it a go. I have a young family and would love to be able to make Cowra a more vibrant town.”

“The more diverse council is, the fewer blind spots there are. Different perspectives are important.”

She said she would also like to influence more transparency in the Council. Sharon D’Elboux brings with her the creative slogan “Bring your mojo, vote 1 D’Elboux”.

Her focus points will be events, business, results, facilities, sustainability, ideas enabled and safety.

“Cowra has great opportunities, is a great place with clean air and clean soil, and now is the time to grow into the future,” she said.

“I want to be a voice, an advocate and a leader, and for me, it’s now or never.”
