The orange shirt is hard to miss.
Michael Prevedello admits he's making a "bit of a show" around town but he has one thing in mind.
"There are two things I want people to think of me," he said.
"The first is that I'm keen to get into local government and represent people and secondly, that they want me representing them."
The well known Radio Goulburn newsreader is having his second tilt. He also served one term in the late 1980s, early 1990s when he was running the family's Mulwaree Private Hotel, now Mandelson's, in Sloane Street.
"Family and friends have encouraged me to stand," he said.
"A lot of people don't like being in uncomfortable positions but politicians at every level are because they're speaking to people all the time. You don't have to be a zealot to represent people, you don't even have to stand tall, but you do need to stand up because you are speaking for others."
While the former hardware store manager plans to listen, he also has a few things on his mind.
Recently, Marulan people have contacted him about development challenges. The "ageing" sewage treatment plant is delaying progress on several subdivisions, residents say. The council has allocated funds for a future upgrade.
"It will take a lot of money to deal with but it must cater for the purposes of the time. It has to be planned," Mr Prevedello said.
At Tarago, he sympathises with residents worried about Veolia's waste to energy plant. Mr Prevedello agreed with the council that biodiversity, human and animal health were vitally important and was "leaning towards opposition" to the project.
On the difficult Wakefield Park issue, he said people were entitled to the amenity they bought into but it was "impossible" to ignore the millions of dollars the raceway injected into Goulburn.
"It has become an integral part of the Goulburn economy and you can't just leave that on the side and give it inadequate consideration," he said.
"...I'm fully in favour of what they do and the people they draw to town."
As the area grows, connectivity will become more important. Mr Prevedello supports a ring road around Goulburn, which is on the council agenda, and a second access for Run-O-Waters. Likewise, better links to the Hume Highway are needed, along with improvements to the Lagoon/Union Street intersection in Goulburn.
Similarly, he lauds the new performing arts centre and improvements to sporting facilities like the aquatic centre and Cookbundoon field amenities, saying they will cater for the sectors well into the future.
"We have to build and modernise our infrastructure," Mr Prevedello said.
He plans to balance his broadcasting role with council duties, if elected. Asked about conflict of interest, he said he would keep his reporting separate.
"It has to be impartial; it can't be any other way," he said.
"I won't take advantage of what is said in camera, my ethics won't allow it. Don't get me wrong, (on other things) I'll listen to what's going on and do a bit of lateral thinking (on how it can be used)."
At the same time, the practicing catholic will finish a Theology degree in the next year.
Although conceding there's much more to just reading council agendas, Mr Prevedello says he has time to devote.
"I think I have the ability to listen, take people's views on board and speak up on valid causes," he said.
The election will be held on Saturday, December 4.
