NEWLY elected Glenorchy Aldermen have been sworn into their roles, following the recent Local Government Elections.

The election results were made official at a Declaration of the Polls event in Moonah on 4 November, with the successful candidates – including Mayor Bec Thomas and Deputy Mayor Sue Hickey – reading and signing the Declaration of Office.

The other eight elected Aldermen are Kelly Sims, Molly Kendall, Jan Dunsby, Steven King, Josh Cockshutt, Harry Quick, Russell Yaxley and Stuart Slade.

Mayor Thomas said the swearing in event marked the start of the new Council working together to serve the Glenorchy community.

“With over 51,000 people, Glenorchy is a growing and diverse City with many differing viewpoints, opportunities and challenges,” she said.

“It’s a huge honour for us all to be elected by ratepayers and residents to represent our community, and this event signifies our commitment to work together to achieve the best outcomes for our City and those that live, work, study and play here.”

Before holding its first meeting on 28 November, the new Council held a series of workshops to familiarise themselves with Council meeting procedures.

“This also provided us all with an opportunity to get to know each other and understand how we can best work together to manage our resources effectively and deliver for our community,” Mayor Thomas said.
