Historic election for Frankston

Frankston City Councillors have re-elected Nathan Conroy for a second successive term as Mayor.

Joining Mayor Conroy to lead the Council is Councillor, Liam Hughes, who at 20 years of age is the youngest ever Deputy Mayor elected in Frankston.

Mayor Conroy thanked Councillors for their support, noting it was the first time a Frankston
City Mayor has served back to back terms for more than 20 years.

“I said it last year and I will reconfirm my commitment to our community that I will continue to work hard and contribute to the best of my ability,” he said.

“I am so proud to work with a group of Councillors that are all committed to working for the community, representing their values and making decisions for the greater good.

“It continues to be a great pleasure of mine to get out and meet as many people as possible and be there because I want to. We live in one of the greatest City in the world. I may be biased but I do believe it.”

He said the City was on the rise “literally and metaphorically”.

“This Council is giving developers the certainty to invest in Frankston City and we are encouraging businesses like the Sporting Globe, Hotel Lona, Oliver’s Corner, Betty’s Burgers and the Hop Shop to the City.”

“Thank you so much – we have had a wonderful year and I can’t wait to get started and
continue on as I started in November last year.”

Council CEO, Phil Cantillon congratulated Mayor Conroy and Deputy Mayor Liam Hughes on
being elected to the roles.

“I look forward to working with them both in the coming year to achieve great outcomes for the Frankston City community.”

“Thank you as well to the outgoing Deputy Mayor Suzette Tayler, for her leadership and
commitment as a truly passionate advocate for Frankston City,” Mr Cantillon said.
