Our Division 5 community would be the most diverse region in our Council area – as well as the largest by a country mile.

Your incoming councillor should have the skills and attributes to be able to identify and respect the individuality of each of our villages – from rural to urban, industry, retail, community services and more.

Working across diverse communities and understanding how to enhance these is a challenge. In a past role I worked across a number of Cape York communities to deliver Indigenous Welfare Activities. Each activity we developed aimed to respect and enhance the values and needs of those communities.

It all begins with great communication and engagement and respect.
