About Councillor Asher

Describe yourself

A community-focused person with a passion for getting things done.

I run a management consultancy business focusing on corporate strategy, policy and communications, with specialist expertise in annual and sustainability reporting.

I’m the best-selling author of Susan Alberti’s authorised biography and I continue to be inspired by people with resilience, manners and a sense of humour.

Why did you run for council?

I’ve lived on the Bellarine Peninsula for 20 years and I’ve seen firsthand the importance of strong and principled people standing up for the community.

Top three areas of focus during this Council term

  1. Supporting faster and more efficient process at council, particularly to get businesses back on track post-COVID.
  2. Ensuring the North Bellarine Pool and Bellarine shared trails projects are delivered by the City of Greater Geelong team.
  3. Making sustainability action across the organisation a priority for everyone at the City of Greater Geelong.

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

Being open to new ideas, different approaches and more effective means of getting things done.

Favourite thing about Greater Geelong?

The range of landscapes, waterways, activities and options.
