Greens councillor appointed Deputy Mayor

At a meeting of the Canada Bay Council on Tuesday, I was appointed as Deputy Mayor for the next 12 months through a resolution of Council. My thanks to my fellow councillors for their trust in me with this appointment.

In the year since taking on the councillor role, I have moved 4 motions (all passed by Council):

  • a motion supporting marriage equality;
  • a motion to reduce Council investment in financial institutions which invest in fossil fuels;
  • a motion that all new apartments and commercial developments include charging points for electric vehicles; and
  • a motion that Council works to quantify the additional infrastructure required to sustain the State government’s requirement on Council for a further 10,000 residential dwellings between 2016 and 2030 – including schools and all the other facilities needed by the increased population.
