One of many honours that I am fortunate to conduct as Sutherland Shire Mayor is to officially welcome the newest Australian citizens into our community. I recently had the privilege of presiding over two citizenship ceremonies, witnessing firsthand the incredible significance this moment holds for those taking up citizenship. We all know that as residents of the Sutherland Shire we are very fortunate to live in the greatest part of the greatest country in the world, so it is little wonder that others would seek to share in this great fortune. Becoming an Australian citizen is a special moment in the lives of all those who undertake the process, providing a moment to celebrate our shared culture as Australians and the values we aspire to uphold. I know that all residents of the Sutherland Shire join me in extending a warm welcoming to all of our newest citizens and I know they will continue to make a valuable contribution to our community.
