“With nearly a decade of Local Government involvement in Tasmania, combined with significant corporate, political and media experience, Alderman Blomeley has demonstrated the qualities Clarence City Council believes will provide the strong and effective leadership LGAT needs and deserves,” Clarence City Council Mayor Doug Chipman said.

“Alderman Blomeley has the distinction of being the youngest Alderman elected to Clarence City Council when he was first elected in 2000, at 25 years of age,” said Mayor Chipman.

“I have a passion for serving my community and was first elected to Clarence City Council in 2000 and re-elected in 2005. After nearly a decade working at the highest level of my field interstate, I returned to put my roots down once and for all in our wonderful state and was honoured to be re-elected to Clarence City Council last year,” Alderman Blomeley said.

“Importantly, as I don’t bear the additional weight of mayoral chains, I will be in a position to devote 100 per cent focus to the job of LGAT President,” Alderman Blomeley said.

  • Deputy Chairman, The Education Foundation of Tasmania;
  • Chairman of Variety the Children’s Charity, Tasmania;
  • Vice-Chairman, Property Council of Australia (Tasmanian Division);
  • Director, Migrant Resource Centre (Southern Tasmania); and
