MA­DLE NEW CHAM­BER PRES­I­DENT

Town me­chanic em­braces new role

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page - By LEAH KIDD Leah.Kidd@news-mail.com.au

WITH his house sit­ting on the edge of the high­way, Troy Ma­dle has sure seen a lot come and go through Childers – but one thing has al­ways stayed the same.

“I love Childers,” Mr Ma­dle said.

The town­ship holds more than 100 years of fam­ily his­tory for Mr Ma­dle who you may know as the face be­hind the name Ma­dle’s Me­chan­ics.

But it’s not the only hat Mr Ma­dle will wear around Childers as he em­braces his new role as the Childers Cham­ber of Com­merce pres­i­dent.

And while he’s got big ideas for the small town, he said they meant noth­ing with­out the sup­port of his com­mu­nity.

“I’ve got ideas, but I can only state them,” Mr Ma­dle said.

He viewed his new job as more of a lis­ten­ing role.

“That’s the im­por­tant thing to do, to lis­ten,” he said.

“You’re got to go with the ma­jor­ity of the com­mit­tee and the town.”

And since tak­ing on his new ti­tle just last week, Mr Ma­dle has al­ready hosted his first meet­ing, chat­ted with mem­bers of the com­mu­nity and gath­ered a list of projects he’d like to move on.
