Cr Julian Brown
Cr Brown has a life-long connection with Bass Coast and is the fourth-generation of his family to reside in the Shire. One of his grandfathers worked in the State Coal Mine in Wonthaggi as a coal miner and his father has had a long involvement in local and state government.
Cr Brown grew up and attended primary school in Wonthaggi, and studied at Newhaven on Phillip Island before moving to Melbourne to finish his VCE studies. He spent time volunteering in South Africa before studying history, politics and languages at university.
For a number of years, Cr Brown also lived in Japan where he worked as an English teacher and studied martial arts. He returned to live in Bass Coast in 2012 and established a small business teaching martial arts.
Cr Brown wants to see Council taking a balanced approach that gives due consideration to communities, the environment and the local economy.
