Cr Gavin Jones was elected to the South Burnett Regional Council in April 2016.
Cr Jones' family are from the South Burnett and his grandfather was a Councillor for the former Nanango Shire Council for 21 years. Starting out his career as an apprentice motor mechanic, Cr Jones went on to work with Energex for 10 years followed by leasing the Maidenwell Hotel in 2006 and taking ownership in 2008.
"I served as President of the Maidenwell Community Group which gave me the urge to run as Councillor as I had been dealing with the Council first hand for a few years. As part of my election campaign I vowed to fight for Division 2 and the issues of the ratepayers which I will continue to do through my term of office" Cr Jones said. "If anyone in Division 2 or the wider South Burnett region has an issue, I am more than willing to take the cause to Council until we get a resolution".
Cr Jones is the portfolio representative for Roads & Drainage.
