Cr Cameron grew up in Albury, attending Aquinas Christian Brothers College (now Xavier High) before joining the Army Reserve in 1982. He was a soldier in the regular army from 1984 to 1990.
A diverse career has seen him work locally as a postman, at Albury Base Hospital and Uncle Ben’s. In 1995 he was the first ALP endorsed candidate to be elected to Albury Council.
However work commitments took him to Narromine where he was employed with the Australian Workers Union before becoming Government Relations Manager for NSW Farmers. During his time he strongly advocated for key legislation regarding native vegetation and natural resources.
He remains actively involved in the ALP, having contested two state elections and loves Albury for its perfect balance between liveability and size. He was re-elected to Council in 2012.
