Councillor Paul Pisasale was elected to Council in March 1991, elected Deputy Mayor from April 2000 and has been Mayor of the City of Ipswich since March 2004 and is currently serving his third term with an amazing 88% of the primary vote.
Paul's dedication to the City of Ipswich, as well as his drive and enthusiasm, are very evident to all that come in contact with him. He is passionate about working at a regional level, breaking down barriers and ensuring that people are the number one priority for local government.
Paul has an active interest in business, youth and senior initiatives, many business and community organisations and employment enterprises and is Patron of over 40 organisations.
In May 2006, Paul attended "Global City", the international forum for urban decisionmakers where more than 80 Mayors attended from cities across the world. Paul was the only Mayor from Australia invited to attend this international forum held in Lyon, France.
Paul is regarded as a leader in the areas of regional economic development and tourism and understands the importance of job creation to cities.
Paul is the Chair of the National Growth Areas Alliance (NGAA) which advocates for the needs of communities in the fast growing outer suburbs of our cities. Click here to see the latest information on what NGAA is doing about jobs, education and training, transport, housing and services.
Ipswich has been at the forefront of building strong partnerships between Australia, China, Japan and India. The Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO) chose Ipswich as the location for one of their international conferences.

Paul's strong involvement with the many multicultural organisations in the community has seen him awarded:
