Councillor Kate Richards was elected by the residents of the Pullenvale Ward in the March 2016 election after having worked tirelessly with the people and community groups throughout her campaign.

Councillor Richards’ enthusiasm is contagious and her commitment to enhance the quality of life shared by the Pullenvale constituents is of paramount importance. She shares a long, personal history with the region that started as a young child when she accompanied her grandfather (a local builder and bricklayer) as he worked on countless projects throughout Brisbane’s western suburbs.

Councillor Richards has since realised a life-long dream of raising her family here in the unique blend of rural and residential living that the Ward offers. The Councillor’s home is in Pullenvale where she lives with her family of three boys and wonderfully supportive husband.

Councillor Richards’ primary commitments are to ensure that decisions impacting the Pullenvale Ward are well considered and that rates dollars are wisely spent. She stands for being an active and accessible local government representative for the Ward and invites local residents to stand with her and get involved.

Councillor Richards’ extensive background in the construction industry and high level negotiations, coupled with more than 10 years with Brisbane City Council, has afforded her the critical experience necessary to undertake her role as Councillor. ‘This role of Councillor is not simply a job – it’s my vocation’.

Councillor Richards pledges her ongoing commitment to the residents of the Pullenvale Ward and operates from a stable platform of contribution, solutions and sustainability.
