Queanbeayan councillor resigns

Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council has accepted the resignation of Councillor Edwina Webster for personal reasons.

Mayor, Kenrick Winchester thanked Councillor Webster for her service to the community.

“Councillor Webster is a dedicated advocate for our rural villages and farming families, and always a passionate Councillor, particularly around issues close to home in Bungendore, representing her community with energy,” Mayor Winchester said.

“Cr Webster will be missed as a part of Council, and we wish her well. She took a specific interest in the Molonglo Rail Trail, finding solutions for the lead contamination along the railway line in Bungendore and Captains Flat and the proposed Bungendore High School.

“As a local volunteer, Cr Webster has been championing the needs of our sporting associations in the development of the Bungendore Sports Hub and new Swimming Pool.”

Cr Webster served on various committees during her time with the Council, including Lake George Bush Fire Management Committee, Lake George District Liaison Committee, Lake George Emergency Management Committee, Bungendore Floodplain Risk Management Committee, and the Mick Sherd Oval Canteen Committee.

The Mayor said Council will apply to the NSW Minister for Local Government to operate with 10 councillors until the 2024 election.
