I have lived in Shepparton for most of my life; my family is third generation Shepparton residents. 

I was involved in the real estate industry for 35 years and in that time have owned two real estate offices and worked in commercial and residential real estate sales. I have served as Director of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) for nine years and previously held the role of President of the REIV. 

This is my second term as a councillor, previously serving as Mayor from 2008-2012. 

What you are most looking forward to about being on Council?

Positive, conservative and consistent leadership as we recover from COVID-19, and I will assist fellow councillors to achieve those aims.

I want to examine the burden of rates on commercial, industrial, rural and residential ratepayers, assist in producing positive climate change outcomes, assist outlying communities, address our water and environmental challenges and advocate for ratepayers.

Proper planning will be crucial, including the 2050 Plan. We must assist our major tourist attractions of SAM and the Botanic Gardens to grow and prosper as national destinations. The Eastbank Lake Project will get my ongoing focus as well.
