Cr Fern Summer

I am a local nurse and mother who was elected in 2012. I graduated from Goulburn Valley Grammar School, hold a Bachelor degree from Deakin University and believe I am a credible and informed voice for the people.

Greater Shepparton is a magnificent place to be. Our strong points of difference are the rivers, small towns, retail sectors, tourism and agricultural industries, which all afford unlimited opportunity in moving forward.

Greater Shepparton is a fast growing municipality, which presents many challenges. It's imperative that Council transition the community from a 'town', to an important regional city, whilst keeping up with investment, infrastructure, services, employment and culture.

I believe everyone has a responsibility to make a positive contribution to society and my focus will be balancing the needs of our community with health promotion and social justice. Together, we can position Greater Shepparton as the premier place to live, work and play.
