Councillor Tanya Milligan was elected as only the second Mayor of the Lockyer Valley Regional Council in April 2016.
Cr Milligan’s local government career began in 2000 when she was first elected to the former Laidley Shire Council, having served in the position of Deputy Mayor between 2004 and 2008. Following amalgamations, she was elected to Lockyer Valley Regional Council in 2008 and again in 2012, where she held the position of Deputy Mayor throughout this term.
She spent her early years in Caffey in the Lockyer Valley and witnessed first-hand the vital role of the agricultural industry when her family started farming in Helidon. Cr Milligan raised her family while living at Laidley Creek West and now resides in Laidley.
Cr Milligan describes it as an honour to work with the community she holds so close to her heart and it is her desire that community members are proud of who they are, where they work and where they live in this great region.
