First elected: 2015 (January election count-back)
Cr John Zobec was born in Kyabram, attended local schools and grew up on a dairy farm just south of the town. On finishing his education, he went to work on the family farm which he later bought in partnership with his brother.
While he no longer operates the dairy farm, Cr Zobec now runs an earthmoving business with his brother, providing laser grading works to farms in the region.
Cr Zobec is married to Rosina and has four children - two sons and two daughters.
With a passion for old cars and tractors, including five tractors currently under restoration, Cr Zobec keeps busy “under the hood” outside of his councillor responsibilities. He has been a member and past president of the Kyabram Vintage and Machinery Group.
