Councillor Kahn Goodluck is the Deputy Mayor of Gladstone Regional Council. He lives in Boyne Island and has three young children. He is a boilermaker by trade and has worked in local industry as well as performing as a musician at events and venues across the region.
Having lived in both a city and growing up in Kilkivan, a small country town, he believes the Gladstone Region is the perfect combination of both. It offers the services of a city with the benefits of a country lifestyle – like a safe community and the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors – and is the perfect place to provide a great lifestyle and opportunities for his children.
Cr Goodluck has been a union delegate and health and safety representative in construction, and through this work, has honed the valuable art of negotiation and compromise to reach positive outcomes. He believes his working-class background brings a different and valuable perspective to Council.
Cr Goodluck is motivated to engage with people throughout the region and ensure everyone gets a fair go. He is passionate about government policy and the impact it has on people’s lives. He is outgoing, determined with a positive attitude and strong work ethic that will serve him well on Council.
