Les was born and raised in Townsville and has 14 years’ experience as a city Councillor.
Before joining the council, one of Les’s first jobs was as an apprentice plumber on the Burdekin Dam project - the largest dam in Queensland. He also worked at Townsville Correctional Centre for five years with adult offenders and for eighteen years at Cleveland Youth Detention Centre managing young offenders.
Les and his wife have also owned and operated several small businesses in Townsville and are the proud parents of two adult children.
Les is a member of the North Queensland Sports Foundation, has been a past champion in the sport of cycling and has played football (soccer) as well. As a football fan, Les would like to see an Asian team based in Townsville and competing in the Football Federation Australia competition.
He loves the Townsville lifestyle and enjoys the great outdoors, fishing, boating and camping with family and friends. Les believes that Townsville’s great lifestyle must be protected for future generations.
Les has a genuine interest in renewables and helped secure Townsville’s bid as a “Solar Cities” recipient in 2007 - this program was completed in 2013.
Les has completed a Diploma in Management and is currently the Community Ambassador for RUOK!
