Gary Baildon previously served 14 years as a Councillor for the City of Gold Coast including three terms as Mayor. Returning to Council in 2016 following a 12 year break, his goal is to see the building of the duplicate Isle of Capri Bridge, which will ease congestion through Chevron Island and into Surfers Paradise.

Gary is a semi-retired business man with experience in retail, wholesaling and advertising and served as Chair of the Gold Coast Waterways Authority and numerous community and charitable committees over his many years of service. His commitment has been recognised with a number of awards, including Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 2010 and receiving an Honorary Doctorate from Griffith University.
