Cr Kathy Duff lives on the family property "Di Di' Station that was selected in 1916 by her Grandfather John Patrick Duff who also served as a Councillor. Cr Duff's brother was a Councillor on the former Wondai Shire Council.
Kathy runs her own cattle grazing and timber business. She has a strong interest in the equine industry and judges horses at local shows as well as pursuing her hobby as a silversmith when she can find the time. Cr Duff is involved in numerous community organisations and in 2007 was named Queensland Country Life All-Rounder of the Year for her work in the rural industry and her involvement with numerous community groups.
"I am honoured to have been elected Deputy Mayor by my fellow Councillors and elected unopposed by the Division 5 community to serve this third term in Council. I believe that the South Burnett is more fortunate than other amalgamated Councils' due to the close relationship that the four former shires had developed through common interests. As Councillor for Division 5, I see an opportunity to promote tourism, attract new industry and business, coordinate regional events and lobby for funding with a united voice. I am also very keen to ensure that rural communities and outlying areas get a strong voice across the Council table and that individual communities are well represented and supported" Cr Duff said.
Cr Duff is the portfolio representative for Natural Resource Management, Rural Services, Parks and Indigenous Affairs.
