John MinneyCr John Minney

I was elected as Councillor for the Joslin ward of the City of Payneham in 1971 and served as an Alderman and Mayor until the amalgamation in 1997, when I was elected as a Councillor in the Torrens Ward, I did not seek reelection in the 2000 election but in 2003 I again nominated as a Councillor in the Torrens Ward and have served in that capacity to the present time.

As a local council member I have served our community in many ways, as chairman of the Eastern Region of Councils and on the Executive of the Local Government Association where I held positions on the Finance Board and the Water Resources Committee, who assisted in advising Councils on irrigation of reserves and playing fields.

I was Chairman of the Board of Aldersgate Village in Felixstow, chairman of the Payneham Youth Club, an instructor for the Payneham Chrysler Swimming Club and patron of the Payneham Football and Cricket Clubs and the Trinity Gardens Bowling Club.

I currently sit as a member of the Development Assessment Panel, the Economic Development, Cultural Heritage and Public Arts Committees and as the Council representative to the Highbury Landfill Authority.

I am a retired Civil Engineer, married to Margaret who is a lawyer. We have three grown up daughters and three grandsons and a granddaughter. Margaret and I both enjoy music, art and lead an active life in our community.
