New councillor for Mornington Peninsula

Simon Brooks has been elected as the new Seawinds Ward Councillor for the Mornington Peninsula Shire.

He will be sworn in as Councillor at the Ordinary Council Meeting to be held on Tuesday 7 February 2023 and begin his official duties.

He was previously a councillor for Seawinds Ward from 2016 to 2020.

He will join Deputy Mayor, Debra Mar and Councillor Antonella Celi representing the Peninsula, including the townships of Safety Beach, Dromana, McCrae, Rosebud and Capel Sound.

“On behalf of my fellow Councillors, I’d like to congratulate Simon and welcome him back to the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council,” said Mayor, Steve Holland.

“Simon brings plenty of experience to this role, having previously represented Seawinds Ward as a Councillor for four years.

“I look forward to working with Simon to support the community and deliver on the services, programs, projects and events that matter to our residents and ratepayers.”

The extraordinary vacancy occurred due to the resignation of Councillor Kerri McCafferty in December last year.

A vote countback was hosted by the Victorian Electoral Commission on 30 January 2023.
