Cr Gayle Maher

Gayle is a second term councillor at the Wellington Shire, representing the Coastal Ward and aiming to be a reasonable voice around the table.  

Married to a local tradesman and a mother of three, Gayle understands the importance of local communities having lived in the Port Albert area for the last 15 years, having moved from the Mornington Peninsula.  

Gayle remains very busy running their cabinet making business, as well as being involved in various local committees around the region including running the Facebook page Discover Port Albert.  

One of her priorities in the next four years is to ensure that the coastal communities continue to remain viable into the future, particularly taking into consideration the impacts of climate change and modelling.  

Gayle was actively involved in the Council’s C33 Planning Scheme Amendment, which many believed ensured Port Albert’s future.
