Cr Gwenda Allgood

I have lived in Ararat since I was 10 years old, married Morris Allgood, raised a family, worked and ran a small business and a small farm, and as most know I am a very passionate Araratarian. My committment to the Ararat Rural City and its ratepayers has always been an important part of my life and this dedication is still very real for me. I have been a president and member of many different Ararat clubs and associations including Green Hill Lake Development Board, Ararat Show Society, CFA Ladies Auxiliary and Friends of J Ward, to name a few.
I was originally elected to Council when I recognised a need for new netball courts in Ararat and since then, I have fought for many infrastructure improvements, and will continue to do so. I am proud to be apart of Council, particularly for the great outcomes we have achieved recently in reducing rates for ratepayers, placing a large focus in developing our recreational facilities, not only in Ararat, but also in the outlying townships of our municipality and lastly for the continual improvments on our roads, bridges and halls in rural areas. As a Councillor I am always available and willing to listen and aim to help ratepayers in whatever way I can. I love Ararat Rural City and I want to continue to represent and improve our wonderful community in any way that I can.
