Katherine Town Council - "The Heart of Opportunity"

Elisabeth Clark (Mayor)

Elisabeth Clark (Alderman)

  (08) 8972 5500


Lis's vision for Katherine:

Lis would like to see another bridge so we are not relying on one during the wet season. A transport hub would also be important particularly when the trucking industry is growing all the time. They need to eat, sleep and have other amenities that are easier to access than what is available at present.

A little about Lis:

Lis see’s anti-social behaviour as the biggest issue that still needs to be addressed.

Kym Henderson (Councillor)

Kym's vision for Katherine:

My vision for Katherine is for an adaptable, inclusive and sustainable community. A place where families want to raise their children and settle down and for Katherine to be a leader in innovation and to have the courage to be creative. I want both the NT and Federal Governments to see how passionate our community members are and how beautiful and unique our region truly is. I hope to support and guide our community members to speak up for what they want and work together to achieve a brighter future for Katherine.

A little about Kym:

My family and I arrived in Katherine in 1996 after my father was posted through the RAAF to Tindal. My family have lived and worked in Katherine since then (with the exception of a handful of years down south due to RAAF postings). I completed my primary and secondary schooling here at St Joseph’s Catholic College and completed years 11 and 12 at boarding school in Hamilton Victoria. Since finishing school, I have successfully completed a Diploma in Business Administration, a Diploma in HR & Payroll and a Diploma in Management & leadership. I have worked for both Local and State Government departments, not-for-profit organisations and volunteer organisations on various Boards and Committees, all of which have given me a wide variety of experience and skills in Governance and proper business practices.

My experience and skills extend beyond the structure of business and Government; I am a passionate horse woman and a current coach and mentor at the Katherine Horse and Pony Club. I am a member of the Katherine and District Show Society and have been the Equestrian Coordinator for the previous 3 shows, I also train and compete with my dogs in agility and obedience competitions and I love being active and spending quality time with my beautiful family and friends.

I believe strongly in investing in our youth, as they are the future leaders of the community and always offer my support as a mentor. I am an LGBTQIA+ advocate and pride myself on my commitment to giving back to this amazing community that has given me so much during the last 25 years and I want to be a member of the Katherine Town Council for you, for the people of Katherine. I want to represent and advocate for our vibrant little piece of Australia.

As a long-term resident of Katherine and a passionate and active community member, I have developed a deep understanding of the challenges we face. In the face of these challenges I will however, be the champion for innovation, I will fight to empower our community and local businesses to think outside the box, to challenge the status quo and to strive for constant improvements to benefit our community.

Jeremy's vision for Katherine:

I'd like to see Katherine focus on the simple things; like feeding each other with community gardens, finding ways to reuse and recycle and keeping our beautiful country free of weeds and rubbish. 

A little about Jeremy:

Born in Zimbabwe, moved over at 1, back to Zimbabwe in grade 5 and Katherine again in year 10 (2003) after our farm was taken by force. I've lived in Katherine 27 years of my 33 years and don't plan on moving away.
