Cr Robert Aitchison
Robert is a second term councillor and he is proud to have the opportunity to continue to represent the people of Maitland. He believes Maitland is a vibrant city and he feels fortunate that he gets to wake up every day and call it his home. Since moving to the area in 2000, Robert and his wife have loved seeing their two children grow and become part of Maitland.
He believes the continued growth of the city is important and he says he will work to ensure the city’s infrastructure is maintained and improved to keep pace with that growth.
‘I have defended the community on a number of occasions where development may have been inappropriate. I have also been fortunate to have been a part of the team which delivered the new grandstand and playing surface at No. 1 Sportsground, and more recently the completion of our world class indoor pool at Maitland Aquatic Centre’.
Robert’s employment at a local tour company also allows him to be in constant touch with the community and he’s excited to be representing Maitland locals once again.
