Hi, I'm Tim Walker and I am currently a councillor for Launceston City Council. I am looking to bring transparency and sustainability to our wonderful city.
I am a former event manager at UTAS Launceston, reporter for ABC Northern Tasmania, and adviser to Senator Peter Whish-Wilson.
I have lived in Launceston since moving here as a teenager with my family in 1982. I have two sons who grew up here, and I am proud to call Launceston home. I am ready to help make our city the most accountable, inclusive, and progressive city in Australia. Our distinctive advantages are our built heritage, our city's livability, and the Tamar Valley.
I ran for councillor as I believe we need a clear vision for Launceston that goes beyond mall refurbishments. We need a transparent council that is able to embrace the future with confidence, respect and inclusion.
I will be clear about what issues are important to me and hope to address each over my time on council.
