Cr Nancy Sommerfield is in her third term as Councillor.

Nancy strives to ensure everyone is included and considered in her decision making at Council whilst urging efficient and effective use of ratepayers dollars and nurturing the environment in our beautiful Region.

Since elected in 2012 Nancy has invested passionately in the Water & Waste Portfolio, which ensures safe drinking water supply and security; efficient removal and treatment of wastewater and constantly evolving recycling and reuse of waste, reducing waste to landfill whilst also creating energy from landfill.

Nancy has also been proactive in sourcing additional funding for pest and weed management which has seen improved management of pests and weeds along with replacement and repairs to the wild dog fence. Nancy’s background, coming off a property at Cunnamulla, has held her in good stead in this area as well as understanding and supporting our regional towns and farmers.

Further to this, after moving to Toowoomba in 1994, Nancy developed a marketing career in the health sector and then moved to education where she was the Development Coordinator at Downlands College for five happy years.

Active memberships within the community have included Zonta, the YWCA and director of the Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce.

Nancy is a former board member of Fairholme College, Company Directors Course graduate, author, publisher and qualified Life Coach.

Nancy is the proud mother of two adult children and a beautiful little granddaughter. Interests over the years have included patchwork and quilting and whilst Nancy says she can’t ride to save herself she takes a keen interest in Polo, Polocrosse and other horse sports.
