About Jim

I’m a proud Dandenong resident of more than 40 years. I was first elected to Council in 2005 driven by my desire to change perceptions of Dandenong. During my time on Council I have been privileged to be involved in a number of key milestones for this city. I am most proud of the Dandenong Civic Centre (completed in 2014) and the Springvale Community Hub (completed in 2020). I remain committed to achieving the best possible results for everyone who lives and works in this city. I have served as a councillor from 2005-present.
