Gordon spent 10 years of his childhood in Robertson, attending Robertson Public School and then Moss Vale High. After moving to Sydney for employment, raising a family and holding various corporate jobs for 30+ years and living and working overseas for a few years, Gordon returned to Robertson several years ago. He is well-known around Moss Vale as a postman, a job which brings him into contact with the community and keeps him fit. Gordon is passionate about the environment and sustainability and is a regular bushwalker and nature photographer.
Gordon’s personal values are aligned with those of The Greens, which are:
- Ecological sustainability
- Grassroots participatory democracy
- Social justice
- Peace and non-violence
Gordon says: ”What I want to bring to council is the inclusion of environmental impacts in decision making, the involvement of the local people, the community in determining council actions and initiatives, while maintaining the quality and loveliness of the Southern Highlands for all residents and importantly, the future residents of this wonderful shire.”
