Cr Gates is a long term community advocate for Melbourne’s west with a particular focus on important topics such as disability access and inclusion, enhancement of public open space, improving transport options, neighbourhood amenity and supporting community projects/ideas. Cr Gates is also a qualified environmental professional with comprehensive experience that includes contaminated land clean up, pollution prevention and environmental compliance and waste management.

Cr Gates appreciates the natural setting that features across the municipality, particularly the coastal wetlands, and the Laverton and Skeleton Creek wildlife corridors. These areas of open space are unique given Hobsons Bay’s inner-metropolitan location and she believes we must continue to enhance the ability for all residents to enjoy the spaces and be active in our local parks and sportsgrounds. Cr Gates has been a Councillor since 2012,  served as Deputy Mayor in 2013-14 and in 2016-17, and Mayor in 2016-15.
