About - Jimmy for Mayor

My Vision

  • A safe and prosperous regional capital through good planning, revitalisation strategies and broad collaboration.
  • An inclusive Council - and a connected community that has more say on what happens in it..
  • Strategic investment for the infrastructure and projects identified as the priorities in our town.
  • Resetting the relationship with the NT Government.

My Background

I grew up in country Victoria, helping out on the family farm, before undertaking a Bachelor of Science (Biomedical) at Monash University. After graduating with Honours in 2001, I worked in a range of fields and commenced a Masters in Social Science (International Urban and Environmental Management).

In 2008 I headed North and started a new life in Alice Springs. This place is my home and live here with my partner Karine and young son, Louka.

Some of the organisations or projects I've been involved in over the years: include:

  • Alice Springs Town Councl (Councillor) - 2017 to current.
  • Arid Lands Environment Centre (Director) - 2007 to 2021
  • Alice Solar City (Advisory Committee)
  • Regional Economic Development Committee (Deputy Chair)
  • Desert Knowledge Australia (Board)
  • Watch This Space (Board)
  • Wide Open Space Festival (Founding Partner)
  • Olive Pink Botanic Gardens (Board)
For over 13 years I have been working alongside, and more recently, inside the Alice Springs Town Council. I understand how local government works and I know how to get things done.
