One of the most important roles Council has responsibility for is setting the annual budget and plan.This year’s Budget and Annual Plan 2019/20 proposes more than $139 million for council roads, community centres, buildings, sporting reserves and parks.
After three years as Chaffey Ward Councillor, I felt that I was ready for the next step – the mayoralty. On Wednesday 13 November 2019, I was elected as Wyndham’s 2019/2020 Mayor – the youngest in our city’s history.
I ran for Council in 2016 on a platform of giving young families a go and I will continue to focus on this area. In my year as Mayor, I will support improvements in parks & outdoor facilities, advocate for more kinders and schools for our children and fight for fair and equitable funding for infrastructure as our rail corridors, in particular Tarneit Station.
I am keen to also work with my councillor colleagues to build a more sustainable & liveable city with some great projects including the A-League Stadium and transformation of the Werribee City Centre.
I am looking forward to all the experiences and challenges I face over the next 12 months.
Each week I have a message in the Wyndham Star Weekly where I talk about key projects and issues for Wyndham.In case you miss the column in the local paper, you can read my weekly Mayoral column here.
