About Councillor Nelson

Describe yourself

I love Geelong. I love living here and I want to make it the best place it can be. I am a community-focused person who is known for getting things done.


Why did you run for council?

Geelong needs people that will stand up for the community, to make it the best place it can be. We are growing, FAST. So this needs to be sustainable with infrastructure ready to go for our new neighbourhoods. I want Geelong to be a world class, thriving, connected and cosmopolitan city.


Top three areas of focus during your term

  1. COVID-19. From relief to recovery,
  2. Build and maintain our amenity, and
  3. Make our communities more liveable.

What does a ‘clever and creative’ Geelong region mean to you?

For me it means being bold, taking opportunities when they arise, and striving to being the best we can be.


Favourite thing about Greater Geelong?

It's such a great city to live, work and play.
