About Cr Scott Upston

Why did you nominate for election to council?

I am a firm believer in a philosophy of " square peg - round hole and finding a solution to making it fit." I feel as a community we need to work smarter do more with less and be innovative with our approach. My nomination based on the premise of the necessity for change, innovation, and strong governance.

What is your vision for Benalla?

To continue Benalla's growth as a vibrant rural city where it evolves into a destination of choice to relocate for a quality of life. A healthy tourism industry, encourage and support industry growth, promote entrepreneurship, a tech hub and relocation of existing businesses.

What local issues are you especially interested in?

The mental health and well-being of all our community, disconnected youths and ensuring we have our children school ready.

What would you like council to achieve in the next four years?

A leaner, efficient, operationally focussed result driven organisation. A back to basics approach roads, rates and rubbish with some funding left over to drive change tourism/industry, etc.

Your background - work experience, career, family, children, hobbies?

I am a retired veteran with 21 years service, coached athletes with disabilities for 5 years and currently the founder and owner of Primal Health Club. My interests are anything that involves time with family.
