Who is

Russell Milligan?

I am an Ipswich local, self-employed as a telecommunications technician and conduct a small business employing up to 6 sub-contractors.  I built my first home in Rosewood in 1992, cementing my personal history in the greater Ipswich region and now live in Brassall.

My personal development and discipline has been strongly influenced by a military career. I initially served as an Infantry Rifleman, then progressed to becoming a Commissioned Officer, serving as a Military Police Platoon Commander.

My previous community involvement includes SES, Rural Fire Brigade, RSL sub-branch, Freemasonry and community fundraising.

Growing up, Local Government matters were a constant subject of discussion in our home, with my father Bob Milligan being an elected member of Laidley Shire Council for almost 20 years.

I am not a member of any community group or political party. This will, I believe, allow me to maintain an unbiased commitment to Local Government representation.

Russell Milligan will serve Division 4
