Gayle has always had a profound love of the area which started 22 years ago with family holidays. Gayle then chose to relocate permanently a little over ten years ago, and settled in Port Albert.

Married to a local tradesman and a mother of three children, Gayle understands the importance of local committees.

Prior to working in local government Gayle spent many years a Law Clerk.

Gayle is the creator and administrator of the Discover Port Albert Facebook page and is the current Secretary of the Port Albert Hall Committee.

This is Gayle’s first time as an elected Councillor for Wellington Shire Council and she is looking forward to the challenges that lay ahead.

In previous years, Gayle has been associated with many Port Albert community groups and has also assisted in the organisation of many activities, such as:

  • Port Albert Mechanics Hall Committee
  • Port Albert Progress Association
  • Port Albert Tattler, Editor and Publisher for six years
  • Port Albert Racecourse and Recreation Reserve Committee
  • Port Albert’s Australia Day Picnic in the Park
  • Port Albert Movie Club
  • Port Albert Snapperfest.

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