Cr Danita Potter was born and bred in Kingaroy, involved with many organisations as a child from the Brownies to Rural Youth. Cr Potter has worked and travelled overseas during her youth, and her husband’s former career in the Australian Defence Force has allowed her to see all of this beautiful country. No matter where her past lead her, she always called the South Burnett home.
“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.”
As a third-generation local, with family history starting in Kingaroy over 100 years ago, Cr Potter’s family has run local businesses in multiple fields including a butchery, sewing, photography (long before digital), tyre shops, a fuel station, a cream run along with many more. Being re-elected in 2020 she has settled into the role and is aware of what is expected of her by her colleagues and most importantly the community.
Cr Potter is a wife, a mother, and brings a world of experience to the South Burnett. Her goal has always been to make the South Burnett the best place to work and live for people of all ages.
Cr Potter is the portfolio representative for Community Development - Health, Youth & Senior Citizens, Arts & Heritage, Disaster Management, Waste and Recycling Management and Library Services. Cr Potter is the Chair of the South Burnett Local Disaster Management Group.
