Cr Law Representing Division 10
  • Friday 01 May 2020

It is a privilege to be your new Division 10 Councillor representing the people of Kenilworth on the Sunshine Coast Council for the next four years.

I moved to Nambour with my wife Karen in 2001 to raise our family and I’ve played an active part in community life since then. We now have three teenage children, all musicians and sometimes we perform as a family band.

I have worked in the not-for-profit community service sector for the last 25 years, with the last 18 years in Disability. I was the first manager of the Children’s Therapy Centre in Nambour, securing recurrent funding from government to secure its viability. From there I moved to Epic Employment eventually becoming National Manager for Disability Services.

Last week the Councillor Portfolios were decided and I was delighted to be allocated to the Community Portfolio which makes excellent use of my professional background. I’m also very happy to be working alongside Division 1 Councillor Rick Baberowski in that portfolio. Councillor Baberowski made history by becoming the first hinterland Councillor to be voted in as Deputy Mayor, an encouraging sign for the hinterland.

I ran a grass-roots election campaign and I intend to be a grass-roots Councillor, remaining available to the residents of Kenilworth and the surrounding area to help with projects, provide advice and be a dependable link between what your community wants and the people who can help you to get it.

COVID-19 has thrown a spanner in the works of communication, but as always there are ways round it and our priority right now is staying safe as a community. Unfortunately I can’t set up ‘listening posts’ in every town, as I had planned, at least not just yet anyway. But I am answering my phone and responding to emails and attending community meetings via video link.  I look forward to working with you.
