This month's Macarthur Online meeting will be featuring ex-mayor for Campbelltown, Clinton Mead. Clinton was the first ever Liberal Democrats member elected to council and served as Councillor and mayor for four years. He will be discussing his time on council and the Liberal Democrats place in local government political discourse.
More about Clinton:
Clinton Mead is a software developer who joined the party in 2010, and was elected to the National Executive later that year. He was elected to Campbelltown Council in September 2012, becoming the first representative of the party elected under the Liberal Democrats name. Clinton served a 4 year term, including one year as Mayor, where he was vocal in opposing rate rises and excessive regulation on business, developers and ratepayers, including embarrassing the council enough to reverse a draft plan of lowering height limits. His experience in government has made him even more of a libertarian than he was when he entered office, and reinforced the importance of electing more Liberal Democrats to all levels of government
