“The Final Word from your Candidate”

I enjoy representing our residents, those who live all the way from Jimna in the north to Minden in the south.  Over the past four years, I have attended various events, fetes, fairs, carnivals and meetings throughout our 5373 km2.  

 

These memories are openly shared on my Councillor Facebook page.  Finally, I have enjoyed working with fellow Councillors and Staff to achieve our vision and associated goals. 

I hope you agree that I am worthy to represent you for the next four years.

179 YEARS AT CRESSBROOK

Today, the McConnel family celebrate 179-years of settlement and custodianship at Cressbrook.

Cressbrook is now run by fifth-generation descendant Christopher McConnel, with his wife Susan and their daughter Caitlin. Their home, the House at Cressbrook, is the oldest residence and third oldest building in Queensland, and they are the oldest identified family business in Queensland.

In the words of Madge McConnel (nee Kent of Jondaryan), wife of second-generation owner of Cressbrook, James Henry McConnel, “the story of Cressbrook would not be complete without reference to old friends, and employees whose memory we value, and whose descendants some of them are still with us or settled near us.”

Madge’s words continue to have relevance today, over 100-years on. Today, Christopher, Susan and Caitlin not only celebrate this historic milestone, but more importantly, it provides an opportunity for them to be grateful for, and to acknowledge the continued support of friends, family and members of the public who hold their story, and the history of agriculture and development in Australia, dear to their hearts.
