Councillor Mindy Russell was elected to Council in 2020.
Prior to this she managed The Family Place, a community-led family support program in Logan which provided strategic partnering across disciplines to solve complex issues while working with families to provide their children with every advantage.
Cr Russell is qualified as a Child and Family Practitioner and a school teacher and has degrees in Education and Child and Family Studies.
She and her partner Glenn have three children between them – Michael, Cooper and Elyse.

Her goal is to make Logan famous as the best city in Australia to raise children.
