Clare Jenkinson, since 2023. Jenkinson was appointed to replace Peter Matic as councillor for Paddington in June 2023.
The Toowong ward was created in 1994 as a merger of Liberal-held Taringa ward and Labor-held Paddington ward, and was won in 1994 by new Liberal councillor Judy Magub.
Magub was re-elected in 1997, 2000 and 2004, and retired in 2007. In the lead-up to the 2008 election, the Liberal margin in Toowong was cut from 12.7% to 1.8%.
Liberal councillor Peter Matic was appointed to the casual vacancy, and was re-elected in 2008 with a 10% swing.
In 2012, Matic was elected to a second full term with a slim 0.3% swing. He currently serves as Chairman of the Public and Active Transport Committee.
Matic was re-elected to represent the renamed Paddington ward in 2016 with a margin of 6% against the Greens. He won another term in 2020, but just by a 0.7% margin.
Matic retired in 2023, with the LNP’s Clare Jenkinson filling his vacancy.
