Mayor Elisabeth Clark

Board Member – Municipals

Katherine Town Council

Elisabeth, known as Lis, has lived in Katherine for over 50 years. With her husband Ian, a Katherine local, they raised their two children in Katherine and now have five grandchildren.

Lis’s previous life was in horticulture where she owned a plant nursery with Ian for 30 years as well as a landscaping business for 25 years. She often sees areas in Katherine that she has worked on.

Lis was first a Councillor in 2008. She represented the voice of rural residents as she understood the issues of rural living, herself living 28 kilometres out of town on a dirt road.

Lis stepped into the role of Mayor in December 2020, and was elected as Mayor in 2021.

Lis loves the Katherine community, its many events, the unspoilt surrounding country and the progressive initiatives welcomed here.
