Frankston City Councillor Nathan Conroy has been elected for a third successive Mayoral term – the first person to achieve the honour in the city’s history.
“It has already been an amazing two years as Mayor, but I was keen to continue my mission of advocating for the interests of residents and positively representing Frankston City,” Mayor Conroy said following his election last night.
“No other Mayor in Victoria is currently getting to experience the pace of change and growth that we are seeing here. No other City presents as many opportunities and prospects for its residents.
“It is incredibly exciting times. Many thanks to my fellow Councillors for their continued vote of confidence and most importantly, many thanks to my darling wife, Steffie, and son,
Callan, for their patience as I continue to throw myself into my duties as Mayor every day!”
Councillors voted to defer the election of Deputy Mayor to a Council Meeting on Monday, 20 November.
Council CEO, Phil Cantillon congratulated Mayor Conroy for his dedication and service, saying, “The Mayor has contributed enormously to the business and outcomes of the Council in so many ways.
“Whether that’s been to build a deeper understanding of the vast array of services and programs we provide, rolling up his sleeves on key issues or out their speaking to our diverse community groups.
“He returns to the role of Mayor with the best wishes and support of myself and the organisation.”
