I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Tony Perrett who has been returned as our representative in State Parliament.

As most would appreciate, it is vital for Council to work together with both Tony and our Federal representative Llew O’Brien to achieve positive outcomes for our region. 

 

It is also incumbent upon local governments to form strong relationships with not only their local state and federal representatives but also with the sitting government of the day. 

Regardless of one’s personal politics, I firmly believe it is that attitude – to work with the sitting government – which will continue to see funding and infrastructure results to build a better community for our residents.  

Cr. Mick Curran, Mayor
