Cr Karen Egan has been a resident in Nillumbik for the past 25 years and wants to represent landowners in the rural parts of the Shire, as well as in urban areas, with honesty and transparency, and proper consultation prior to decision making.
Concerned with issues affecting rural residents Cr Egan said, "It's time there was suitable representation for landowners in this Shire. Fire mitigation, fuel reduction across the Shire, Aged services, Council roads and reserves are important to me and the people I represent.
"I will address the overwhelming community concerns about C101 and C81 and will engage fully with the community before any future planning reviews are undertaken, and I commit to working cooperatively with the other Councillors to deliver much better outcomes for the ratepayers."
Cr Egan has five children and is a fine-art photographer, as well as the owner of an organic, healthy food franchise with her eldest daughter.
