Coleraine’s David Robertson elected Mayor for another term

Councillor David Robertson from Coleraine has been elected for another term as Mayor of the Southern Grampians Shire Council.

Cr Robertson was formally elected at a Statutory Council Meeting at the Council Chambers in Hamilton tonight, where Cr Helen Henry was also re-elected as Deputy Mayor for another year.

“I worked comfortably with my fellow councillors this past year, so I look forward to continuing to do so, alongside the CEO and executive team,” said Cr Robertson. “I’d also like to take the opportunity to thank council staff and the broader community for their support.”

Cr Robertson said during the past 12 months he’d been pleased to see significant developments in council service areas like youth, community planning and the shire-wide grants program – as well as the preparation of council’s Reconciliation Action Plan.

Deputy Mayor Cr Helen Henry said she looked forward to continuing to advocate for areas where council was already taking action, such as agriculture, sustainability and environment.
