Tamborine Bulletin Editor, Kerri Cryer will continue to work tirelessly for her community if she is elected as the Councillor for Division 2.
The incumbent Councillor, Jeff McConnell, has announced his intention to run for Mayor in the Local Government elections on 16 March 2024.
Kerri is well known to Division 2 residents as the Editor and owner of the Tamborine Bulletin and as a volunteer for many community groups.
“My ongoing and keen interest in the local community has led to my undertaking of key secretarial and media roles in local groups such as: the Tamborine & Districts Citizens Association Inc, the Tamborine Memorial Hall Management Association, the Tamborine Cenotaph Committee, and the Tamborine Car Show Committee,” said Kerri.
“My involvement in local community life has seen the need for recognition of people, organisations, and businesses for their significance in the region, and has ultimately led to the creation of local publications – the Tamborine Bulletin and the Yarrabilba Bulletin!”
While running the two community newspapers, she completed a Degree in Business, achieving nine awards and graduating with Distinction.
Running the newspapers has given her a strong insight in the community and a great deal of experience listening to residents talk about their concerns.
“From these interactions, I have always known I wanted to further enhance my work and do something more to help support our wonderful community.”
“Through fostering great communication and good working relationships with our residents, community groups, local businesses, and our Council, I am constantly working to support and enrich our community, our environment, and of course, our lifestyles – particularly where families, wildlife, commercial enterprise, and local developments are concerned.”
