Councillor Paul Dunn
Councillor Paul Dunn was born in Cessnock in 1979, and has lived in Bellbird and Cessnock most of that time. With small work related moves to Gosford and Forster, Cr Dunn returned back to Cessnock to get married in 2004. He and his wife have one young child, Isabella.
Cr Dunn entered the work force in 1998 working for Coles Supermarket at Cessnock. After completing a Degree in Arts/Communications and Certificate and Diplomas in Business, he is now the Regional Sales Manager (Northern N.S.W.) for a multi-national food corporation.
Cr Dunn's main areas of focus are: narrowing the disconnect between the residents and their Council; corporate structures with a sound economic footprint; and delivering more money on the ground, to roads, parks and community based facilities.
It is his belief rate payers come first and foremost and he will aim to represent them and their opinions during his time on Cessnock City Council.
