Kevin Mack has been a frontline leader in the Farrer community for the past 20 years. He is an elected member of AlburyCity council and is serving a fifth term as Mayor. Kevin’s personal and professional achievements are as diverse as the electorate, providing him a unique understanding of both local, state and national issues and how they impact the people of Farrer. He grew up one of five children on a cattle property in the High Country where his father was the station overseer and a high-profile footballer. Living in a small country town taught Kevin community values from an early age. He took duty and an empathy for others into the workforce when he became a police officer.
Kevin’s long and decorated career has included Victorian Youth Police Officer of the Year in 2007. He was awarded Albury Citizen of the year in 2010 and has been recognised a Paul Harris Fellow by Rotary International. Kevin is known throughout NSW as a passionate advocate for regional communities. He has built a reputation for being a person of action, compassion and strength. He holds several senior governance positions, including chair of Riverina and Murray Joint Organisation (RAMJO), NSW Evocities, and NSW Joint Organisation Forum, as well as Deputy Chair of NSW Regional Cities.
