Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 8 March 2023

Agenda Item #5 Matters of Public Interest

Congratulations to Major-General Jake Ellwood who has been appointed the Chief Executive Officer of the Queensland Reconstruction Authority.  Major General Ellwood led the recovery from last year’s SEQ floods as State Recovery Coordinator.  The Queensland Reconstruction Authority is the state’s lead agency responsible for disaster recovery and resilience.  It was the first of its kind in Australia and has responded to over 100 disasters since 2011.

Congratulations also to Emma Gibbons (Granddaughter to past Chairman Kilcoy Shire Council Ken and wife Mary Nunn) for winning the Queensland AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award.  Ms Gibbons was selected from a field of four finalists who epitomized the significant impact women have on rural industries, businesses and communities.  Her Coolum Beach-based business Huds and Toke sells  dog food and treats made with Australian-farmed insect protein and vegetable surplus.  The business now boasts a thriving national and international market base.  Ms Gibbons will represent Queensland as a national finalist in September.

After 39 years, 31 as staff and 2 terms as Councillor, I have enjoyed my journey and understand the importance of Local Government as the grass root level of government.
