Cr Liam Wood was born and bred in Mildura and grew up on the banks of Kings Billabong.
After graduating from the Red Cliffs High School, Cr Wood went on to study landscape architecture at RMIT University. He moved back to Mildura 13 years ago and now runs three businesses.
Cr Wood has a keen interest in events/tourism and the small business sector which he says are vital drivers for the local economy, and has dedicated significant resources and time into events and hospitality in Sunraysia for over a decade.
Cr Wood is involved in many annual charity events, such as Ladies Day, which raises money for Sunraysia cancer research, as well as the ‘our walk’ event, which has raised money for several charities. He said these and other similar events raise much needed funds for local organisations which often get forgotten at State and Federal level.
Cr Wood has committed to do as much as he can for the Sunraysia community during his term, stressing the region and its people have so much to offer and deserve strong representation from their elected leaders.
He believes Council should always conduct its business with integrity, fairness, honesty and transparency for all.
