Until recently, Pat worked as a Divisional Manager for Council, responsible for HR and WHS for all Council employees. This experience gives him a deeper understanding of how the current Council bureaucracy works, and its internal decision making dynamics, which is of great benefit to him and all other elected councillors. He promotes and implements actions based on the valuable principles of the Greens for the benefit of all the Shire’s residents.

His perspective is on developing long term environmentally aware, grass-roots democracy with a focus on the social impact of Council decisions.
