DIVISION 3 candidate Kerry Silver demonstrated her strong ties with community groups while also outlining a number of localised goals she had for the area in her recent Meet the Candidates address.

"I know first-hand the issues that are important to the people and community organisations," she said.

"I've dedicated hundreds of volunteer hours to community groups who are the heart and soul of Division 3.

"I have been working with Riverview Neighbourhood Watch (as) the area coordinator there for 10 years.

"I'm on the committee for Riverview Community Centre (and) participated in events with Redbank Plains Bears and local community organisations."

Ms Silver also used her time to outline specific goals she had for the division, such as the creation of an access road to the council-owned rugby field behind Riverview State School.

"This will transform the area from an underutilised sporting field which already has lighting to a hub for sports to Division 3," she said.

"We need to work together to see council deliver the things residents want, like improved local roads, new traffic signals and strategies to deal with growing congestion.

"We need more public toilets, more children's playgrounds and must also facilitate a recycle tip shop to reduce landfill costs to rate payers.

"I want our Division to be the best place to live, work and visit in Ipswich."

KERRY SILVER RATING - 7/10: Local goals with a solid delivery highlighting work in the community.
