I was honored to present The George Adsett Overall House Cup to the winning house at the Mt Kilcoy State School Awards Night.  The beautiful cup is in recognition of my Great Grandfather’s commitment to achieving a state school on Blunt’s hill, over 100 years ago.

I was astounded at the standard of photography exhibited by renowned Photographer Rob Maccoll who facilitated the Picturing Innovation project.  The official opening was held at The Condensery and the photography exhibition of the nine innovative persons nominated by the community for their trailblazing in our region was extremely professionally presented.  This Photographer has a real ability of catching the pure essence of his subject.  The project was funded through the Regional Arts Development Funding and initiated by the RADF Committee and is extremely proud to be part of this inaugural initiative.

I was personally relieved that the forecast rain did not eventuate on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 December.  The Lowood Lions Christmas in the Park, Esk Christmas Races, Toogoolawah Christmas Tree and Fernvale Christmas Carols continued as planned.  I am fully aware of the hard work and commitment made by the community to bring these events together.

The $2 million Police Station at Kilcoy was officially opened.  The building is a real boost to Kilcoy and to the policing needs of the area.

Lastly, as another year comes to a close, I wish to thank fellow Councillors and Council’s staff for their dedication and commitment during the past 12 months.  I also take this opportunity to wish our retiring Directors all the very best and to acknowledge the work and leadership demonstrated by Council’s CEO, Mr Bob Bain, who is also retiring.  I look forward to being part of a team that will achieve strategic goals and plans during 2019.  Merry and Blessed Christmas to all.

I believe in open communication, active listening and a common sense approach, always.

Meet the Canditates Night - Toogoolawah. I really value questions from the floor and the opportunity presented for residents to share their concerns. It is here that you become very aware of what is important at the grassroots level. Some concerns are more the responsibility of the State Government, however those wishing to represent us for the next 4 years must be aware and respond in the very best way, whether through collaboration or by other strategies. I was very impressed by the number of residents who were using pen & paper to record their preferences. With such a diverse and educated group of candidates, attending these nights are so important on a very individual level of understanding and association. ... See MoreSee Less
