    Ben Ladson wants to take his passion to the City of Greater Shepparton council table

    Ben Ladson (pictured) is convinced his passion would add a new, and needed, dimension to the administration to the City of Greater Shepparton.

    He cares about what happens in the city and witnessing the likelihood of another shop becoming vacant, he bought the business, a business unique in the city and which he sees as providing a valuable social service and along with that adds to reasons people would come to Shepparton.

    He wants people to support him at the city's Saturday, October 24, elections.

    Shane Sali has 'skin in the game' and wants to use his skills to make Shepparton a better place

    Shane Sali (pictured) is in every way a Shepparton man, with skills and knowledge that make him a good choice as a new member of the Greater City of Shepparton council.

    As a local businessman with a young family, Shane meets and talk with local people every day, hears about their concerns and so through his work life and personal involvement with the council program of Shepparton Show-Me, he has an acute understanding of what needs to be done to make the city a better place to live.

    He's asking Shepparton ratepayers to vote for him on Saturday, October 24.

    Fern Summer (pictured) unexpectedly joined the City of Greater Shepparton council in 2012, but has matured and now thoroughly enjoys the role and hopes the ratepayers will elect her on October 24 for a third term.

    Fern was opposed to the idea of a climate emergency for Shepparton until she more completely understood what the benefits were for both rural and urban people that arise from living a more sustainable life.

    Anthony Brophy (pictured), or 'Broph' to his acquaintances, has lived a busy life and made many vital connections; connections he sees as valuable as a councillor with the City of Greater Shepparton.

    Anthony understands the need for the climate emergency as declared early in 2020 by the previous council but wants to see "the plan" for the achievement of this ambitious goal, particular how the city will become carbon neutral by 2030.

    Allan Turner wants to know more about the climate crisis and why it matters to the City of Greater Shepparton

    Allan Turner wants to know more about the climate crisis and why it matters to the City of Greater Shepparton

    Alan Turner (pictured) helped set up Zaidee's Rainbow Foundation soon after his seven-year-old daughter died in 2004 of a cerebral aneurysm and he believes the resultant skills have positioned him perfectly for a role on the City of Greater Shepparton Council.

    The role as CEO of the foundation has led to him working with all levels of government and a vast array of people within the corporate world and taught him the intricacies of sales and marketing, all things he believes will enable him to make the Shepparton a better place to live.

    Allan admits to not being across every detail of the climate crisis but says that once on council it becomes an issue about which he will learn and at the same time share the conversation with his fellow councillors

    'What you do for yourself dies with you, what you do for others, is immortal' - Steve Neff

    'What you do for yourself dies with you, what you do for others, is immortal' - Steve Neff

    Steve Neff (pictured) lives by the motto of "What you do for yourself dies with you, what you do for others, is immortal" and that belief drives nearly every aspect of his life.

    The Rumbalara caseworker wants to represent Shepparton people on the city's council but to do that he will have to find time between being a regular (twice a week) at the Bendigo office of Lifeline, running a Shepparton-based suicide support service, annually being the white-bearded man in a big red and working to ensure those without the opportunity to enjoy Christmas lunch can do so.
