An important message from Councillor Ron Nelson
I love Geelong. I was raised and educated here, and I am passionate about fulfilling the potential and opportunities that lie ahead for our City.
During my 43 years in Geelong, I have a long track record of community service. I have loved supporting and playing for my local cricket and football clubs, and been privileged to be involved with many wonderful charities and clubs such as Rotary, Lions, Give Where You Live, Beyond Blue, and proud member of Geelong CATS, RSL, and our Libraries. Such involvement has instilled in me a deep connection and love of Geelong, and a real understanding of the issues facing local residents and small businesses.
My drive for action and local understanding is supported by my experience as a former chef, small business owner, work with the Department of Defence and my current role as a frontline worker supporting people with disabilities. I know how to get things done compassionately, efficiently, effectively, on time and on budget.
I have consistently delivered on my promises to our community, but there is more work that needs to be done.
I pledge to work tirelessly for you and for our community to ensure our essential needs are met reasonably and economically, and that Council sticks to its core responsibilities.
