I am born and bred life time resident of the Gold Coast, my home town. My passion to run for Mayor of the Gold Coast comes from true blue grass roots and my genuine love for our beautiful city.

We all know how it goes: career politicians making promises during elections, guaranteeing things they know they cannot deliver. Once voted in, things seem to quickly change and those promises get buried, left to be dealt with another day.
If elected to be your Mayor, I will strive to remain transparent with the residents of the Gold Coast, keeping you updated with news on policy and will endeavor to make you part of the process.
I have lived on the Gold Coast my whole life. There are not many people who understand the importance of the tourism industry in this city more than I do. With the Gold Coast being such a sought-after city for productions and events (not to mention our beautiful beaches), tourists will always come and go.
However, I believe it’s important to give all vendors a fair go. We need to take care of our own! I have a lot of experience working for logistics and traffic control units for some of our major events and have seen many unfairly given subcontracts. Let’s see future contracts given to companies based on their merit rather than their name.
I also understand the importance of maintaining our local history. An iconic part of that is the Gold Coast Metermaids. Traditions like these should be maintained.
You’re probably wondering how am I different from any other candidate? They all talk about roughly the same issues and claim to want what they think is best for this city.
I’m the guy on the ground, talking to locals and getting involved in the community every day (not just for the sake of a campaign).
I want to make sure you feel heard and build your trust, not just assume I have it. The reason why I’m different is because I understand that it’s not what I think is best for this city, it’s what YOU think. And it’s time that you were heard.
Why I Do Not Accept Donations
Choosing not to accept donations is a personal preference of mine as donations generally come with obligations.
I am a truly a self-funded, independent candidate, I do not align myself with any political party and 100% represent the people of our community.
I am not a political career chaser; I am impartial and will always remain so.
I believe in holding both state and federal governments accountable and hope to work with these governing bodies for the betterment of our city.

Political newcomer Brett Lambert joins race for Gold Coast mayoralty after years of saving
BRETT Lambert has worked up to four jobs at once for the past three years to save enough money to fund a campaign to become Gold Coast mayor. Now he is putting up his $30,000 in life savings to run against four other contenders for the top job, including against the incumbent, Tom Tate, who reportedly spent more than $500,000 in 2012 to win the position.

Gold Coast council election: Mayoral candidates make their final pitch
The Gold Coast: where millionaire property magnates in BMWs roll up at traffic lights besides overseas tourists straddling scooters with towels over the shoulders. And outside Surfers Paradise’s Marriott Resort – where the Gold Coast’s final mayoral debate was held on Thursday afternoon – that was indeed the case, with bare-chested tourists wandering relaxed as local council hopefuls prepared for their final pitches inside.
