Geoff’s involvement in Local Government for 20 years, 6 of which he served as Mayor for the Port Pirie Regional Council, has put him in good stead to be the elected Member for Frome.
The subsequent win for the seat at the general election in March 2010 following the by- election in January 2009 validates the confidence and trust his community has in him.
No issue is too big or too small for Geoff and his staff to pursue. They don’t openly celebrate their successes but often reflect on the fruits of their labour in working tirelessly for their constituents.
