Agenda Item #5 Matters of Public Interest

2023 Shine Award Dedication Winner – Kathy Duff – Congratulations!

Kathy Duff’s passion, long-term commitment to her community and selfless contribution despite hardship and love for her South Burnett community is evident in everything she has contributed in her role as a councillor for the past 20 years.  The southeast Queensland farmer, grew up on remote 6000-hectare DiDi cattle station as one of five children.  Kathy took over the management of DiDi when her father, who she had cared for during his struggle with diabetes, died in 2019. Just a year earlier, her partner passed away from suicide. Kathy donated $28,000 of her inheritance to build a Men’s Shed in her hometown. Putting others before herself again, she also donated $66,000 to community groups to purchase seven run-down shops in the main street.
