Earlier this week I was honoured to receive the backing of my fellow Councillors in being elected to serve as Sutherland Shire Mayor. I’ve always valued being part this community and am passionate about advocating on behalf of residents and our vibrant local business sector. I’d like to commend the new Deputy Mayor, Councillor Michael Forshaw, who I will be working closely with over the next 12 months to promote a connected and thriving community. I’d also like to thank outgoing Mayor, Councillor Carmelo Pesce whose years of service as Sutherland Shire Mayor have delivered incredible benefit for our community. This year has unquestionably brought significant, unexpected change to all of our lives and I want to thank you for your resilience as we work together to overcome these challenges. I look forward to working with our dedicated team of Councillors as we continue to deliver on our vision of supporting a caring and compassionate community where we can all continue to enjoy shared prosperity and a high quality of life.
