First elected to the City of Ryde Council in 2008, Councillor Maggio is the second longest-serving elected member, representing City of Ryde’s East Ward.

Setting an example for the community he represents is a priority for Clr Maggio, who has embraced the area’s diverse, thriving sporting community. This has included involvement in club administration and as a coach, player and match official in the thick of the action on a City of Ryde sporting weekend. And in the limited time he has to spare, Clr Maggio actively volunteers for local organisations and assisting with community-based events.

As a sole trader in the trades services sector, Clr Maggio is a strong believer in fiscal responsibility and financial sustainability, while also focused on minimising waste in expenditure of ratepayer funds.
