New Elected Council For The Moreton Bay Region!The Moreton Bay Regional Council elected their new Councillors at the Strathpine Community Centre last week and now has the highest member of female Councillors ever elected to represent the Moreton Bay Regional Council. According to the Mayor (Allan Sutherland) the increase in female representation was a milestone the region should be proud of.
“I was very pleased to see the number of female councillors double, bringing a greater level of community representation and diversity into council chambers,” Mayor Sutherland said.
“Diversity is important in Local Government, because your council is charged with the responsibility of representing the interests of everyone in the region.”
“I believe this new council team represents a broad section of our community with school teachers, small business owners, tradesmen, sign writers, land valuers, event organisers, and community volunteers,” he said.
“Seven councillors who served in the previous term have been returned to represent their divisions, and we have also welcomed five new representatives.”
“Our new councillors come from very diverse backgrounds and I know that those who have been returned will help the new councillors to learn the ropes of local government and hit the ground running in what is a very busy and exciting time for our region.”
“I’m confident that we have a very good team of councillors who will be able work well together to achieve great things for the Moreton Bay Region,” Mayor Sutherland said.
