Jamboree currently:

Matthew's Message

The Jamboree Ward is a wonderful place to live and I feel privileged to have spent not only my entire childhood, but also my school years and adult life living in Brisbane's western suburbs.

This unique part of Brisbane has always been my home so it was only natural that when I decided to enter public office to represent my local community, I chose Local Government.

I would like to thank the residents of the Jamboree Ward for their support at the Brisbane City Council elections in March 2008 and April 2012. It is indeed an honour to be re-elected as the Councillor of Jamboree Ward and I am looking forward to continuing to work hard for all of my residents.

The residents of Brisbane have not only shown their support for me, but also for the Lord Mayor and his team. We have a clear vision for the city and we are committed to making Brisbane a better place to live, work and raise a family.

In addition to being re-elected as the Councillor of the Jamboree Ward, I also received the role of Chairman of Council's Environment, Parks & Sustainability Committee. I am truly honoured to be given this role and I look forward to working for the residents of Brisbane to improve our local parks and bushlands and to make our city a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable place to live.

My door is always open and I would like to encourage my residents to contact me if I can be of assistance in relation to any local matter.

Matthew Bourke
COUNCILLOR FOR JAMBOREE WARD
