Mayor Jilly Gibson has lived most of her life in the North Sydney Municipality. She passionately champions many community causes and has represented residents and businesses on Council for over 17 years.
The community elected Jilly as Mayor in 2012 and under her leadership there have been significant positive changes in the Municipality. She has led the revitalisation of the North Sydney Central Business District, bringing life back into the heart of the CBD with events, art and the refurbishment of our public spaces.
Mayor Jilly’s passion about the arts has ensured that Brett Whiteley Place is evolving into a significant community public space. Mayor Jilly is determined to preserve open space for future generations.
Jilly successfully lobbied the State Government to grant North Sydney Council care and control of “Wendy Whiteley’s Secret Garden” ensuring it is protected from development and remains a green oasis for locals and visitors to enjoy.
Mayor Jilly lives in Kurraba Point with her partner Martin. Her two daughters Alanya and Maiya were schooled locally and still live here with Jilly’s grandchildren Rosella, Jack and Monty and Toby.
During this period of Local Government restructuring Jilly is working closely with neighbouring Mayors and Councillors and State and Federal members to ensure maximum benefits for the lower North Shore.
Jilly is committed to community consultation and encourages residents to email or ring with concerns or ideas.
