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

I was involved in the real estate industry for 35 years and in that time have owned two real estate offices, working mainly in commercial and residential real estate sales and property management and auctioneering. I served as Director of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) for nine years and held the role of Victorian State President of the REIV.

This is my second term as a Councillor, previously serving as Mayor from 2008-2011. I offer my vast experience in public authorities when assessing policies that come before Council for determination.

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

I will continue 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.

I will also assist in the development of proper planning processes.

We must assist our major tourist attractions such as SAM and the Botanic Gardens to grow and prosper as national destinations. The Eastbank Lake Project will get my ongoing focus as well.
