Adam Troy

My name is Adam Troy, a 53 yr old Central Coast born resident. I have been married to Kaylene for 30 yrs and we have 3 children. For the last 28 years I have been self employed running my Bobcat excavation business, making me very aware of the challenges small business owners face.
I have been involved with the Rural Fire Service for many years and am currently a Deputy Captain in my local brigade. My wife and I are also very keen fitness enthusiasts.

Having lived on the Central Coast all my life, I know about local issues and what people are saying about their community. I got into local government because I wanted to change the stereotype of politicians that don’t listen and don’t deliver. It was my privilege to be elected as an STL Councillor in 2012 for Wyong Council and am very proud of our many achievements. We were able to deliver many improvements to the Tuggerah Lakes and catchments especially through a robust wrack collection program and the building and upgrading of gross pollutant traps. An increased road improvement schedule, the building of the Arthouse, securing our water supply and a strong financial position for the ratepayers are just a few of the achievements I am very proud of.

There’s more work to do and we need solid results and proven performers for the new Central Coast Council. I will work for everyone and listen to all.
