Gold Coast Councillor calls time on 22 year career

Long serving City of Gold Coast Councillor Jan Grew has announced that she will not contest the upcoming election.

After serving 22 years and battling various health issues, she decided it was time to give someone else a go.

That means come March 2016 Division 11, which takes in Robina, Varsity Lakes and Burleigh Waters, will get a new representative.


Nic Rone will stand for election. He said on Thursday “with the incumbent announcing her retirement at the upcoming Council Election, I am ready to deliver the leadership our community needs”.

Rone added that as the 2018 Commonwealth Games approaches, the next representative needs to be ready to fight for the necessary infrastructure.
