Hi, I’m Charles, and I am running for Pullenvale Ward in the Brisbane City Council 2020 election.
I am a fully qualified urban and environmental planner and hold a Master’s in Development Practice, focusing on community development and engagement.
I grew up in Brookfield attending Brookfield State School. Since then I have lived in both ends of Kenmore, Pullenvale, Mount Crosby, Bellbowrie and currently live with my partner Cecilia in Moggill in a house I designed and built.
These days I am a small business owner, and most of my free time is campaigning out of passion. When I am not campaigning, or working as a small business owner, you could just as easily find me at a pottery class, gaming or doing ball room Latin dance, as kicking pads at a Muay Thai gym, running in athletics or playing rugby. If you have a pet however and it is near me then odds are you will soon find me making new friends.
We live in a fantastic part of the city, with great character and community. I believe that active and genuine representation can improve our quality of life.
It's time for Pullenvale to have a representative on Council that puts the interests of our community first, not those of rich corporate donors. I would love the opportunity to listen to what you would like to see improved in our community. With your help we can make our vision a reality.
Will you join me?
