BIO:

I believe in community and its involvement in Council decisions. The challenges are to return to good governance, trust in Council and meet community expectations for our economy, environment, changes in population and industries. I bring to the position of Mayor qualifications in public sector management, planning and building. Before joining the Tasmanian Department of Justice as a Change Coordinator I worked as the Executive Officer to Hobart’s Lord Mayor. As an independent candidate I will be free of any party politics or self-interests.

Paul Gibson - Councillor

Contact Details:

Phone: 0497 569 989

BIO:

For 30 years I have run successful Architecture and Building businesses. I want to apply my creative and practical skills to finding solutions for sustainable living. Tourism is the industry that is available to the Huon Valley that can provide economic benefits that are sustainable and climate friendly. I am advocating for multi-use tracks, spread across the valley to attract tourists and provide health and transport benefits to locals. Because our valley is so well suited to adventure holidays, every dollar spent on this infrastructure will bring excellent economic benefits. These will be spread evenly and provide ongoing employment to keep our youth here in the valley. For more information see HuonTrails.org.
