“It is a real privilege to serve my community as a Brimbank councillor and in the capacity of Deputy Mayor.
“As a resident of Kealba and Brimbank for 20 years, I believe our greatest strength as a community is our willingness to come together. As a Brimbank councillor, I am passionate about our city and about helping to progress some key projects for the community.
“It has been a pleasure to get to know so many of you since I took office. These connections are important to me, and I look forward to getting to meet even more of you over the next few months, and hearing more about your hopes and ideas for Brimbank.
“At the Imagining Brimbank community workshop I attended on 15 February it was heartening to see the high level of community interest in the topic of planning for the long-term future of Brimbank.
Thank you to everyone who provided their feedback at the workshop or online. Your feedback will be used to develop a Draft Brimbank Community Plan 2040. This will be released for community comment by the middle of this year.
“Earlier this month, it was my pleasure to present the wood chopping award for men at the popular Keilor Gift. As you know this important event is one of the most anticipated sporting events in Brimbank.
Council has been a proud and long-standing supporter of the Keilor Gift and I am pleased to say that Council provided $25,000 funding towards the 2018 Keilor Gift. Well done again to everyone who took part. It was great to see so many people out to enjoy the day and cheer on the athletes and wood choppers.
“On 17 February I attended the Sustainable Living in Brimbank 2018 event. Another great event and it was great to see the keen interest our community have in a whole-of-life approach to sustainable living.”
