Growing up in Kingaroy, Cr Danita Potter was involved with many organisations from Brownies to Rural Youth. Cr Potter worked and travelled overseas, but the South Burnett has always been her home. Born and bred third-generation local, Cr Potter's family has run local businesses including a butchery, sewing / photographic / tyre shops, a fuel station, a cream run and more. Cr Potter's mother Marie Shaw was a Councillor with the former Kingaroy Shire Council, so Cr Potter is well aware of what is involved in being a Councillor and helping the community.

Cr Potter is a wife and mum, and wants to make the South Burnett the best place to work and live.

Cr Potter loves the South Burnett but her husband’s former defence force career took them around Australia.  "After returning to our South Burnett home I desperately wanted to make a difference and felt many issues needed to be brought to the forefront as our community need to know where their rate dollar is being spent" Cr Potter said. "My goal is to ensure our Council remains transparent, accountable and cost effective for the South Burnett Region."

Cr Potter is the portfolio representative for Community, Arts, Tourism and Health Services.
