Hi! I'm Peta.

About Me

I’m a local girl with a 36-year connection to Logan and Division 1, having grown up in Springwood I’ve also raised my own family in the same area.

 

I have a broad range of real world experience, from being a small business owner who understands all of the challenges that go along with owning and running your own business to working in large publicly listed and smaller privately owned organisations as a Financial Controller. During my career I’ve also spent time consulting in the mental health sector, leading a large team of mental health care professionals, practice managers and support staff, guiding process development and strategic management.

 

I hold a Bachelor of Accounting and have been a Justice of the Peace for the past 12 years.  I’m also a community volunteer at the Rochedale/Springwood Meals on Wheels and have ridden over 1500km’s for an Australian based charity supporting vulnerable children.

More About Me
Why I’m running for Logan City Division 1 Councillor

As a local community volunteer and long-term resident, I care deeply about this community and over the past few years I’ve grown more and more dissatisfied with the disconnection between our community and council.   Now that my youngest child is finishing school next year, I’ve decided it’s time to stand up and be an advocate for change and reconnection with our community.

 

My belief is that as a Councillor, serving our community is a privilege, that local council is all about commitment and dedication to the local area, not about politics.  It’s about working with and for the community, listening and ensuring that as locals we have a voice in matters that affect us. 

 

It’s about creating support around families, our youth, the elderly and our sporting and community organisations. I also believe in supporting our local businesses (live local/shop local).

 

I’m currently out meeting everyone in our community, listening to all of the local needs to drive positive change.

 

As an independent candidate I’m not affiliated with any political parties and I will be 100% funding my own campaign.
