Seven new Councillors for Willoughby

Willoughby City Council has announced its newly-elected lineup following the NSW Local Government elections.

Twelve Councillors have been elected across four wards, of which seven are newly-elected first-term Councillors.

The Councillors will join newly-elected Mayor, Tanya Taylor (pictured), in delivering the strategic vision and long-term priorities set out in Council’s Community Strategic Plan, Our Future Willoughby 2028.

“It is an incredible privilege and honour to serve the community of Willoughby as Mayor,” the incoming Mayor said.

“I humbly thank the community for entrusting me with this honour. We have a wonderful sense of community in Willoughby, strengthened in recent times through natural disasters and Covid pandemic. I look forward to building on this and ensuring Willoughby continues to be a diverse, liveable and prosperous community.”

Departing Willoughby Mayor, Gail Giles-Gidney, supported Taylor’s election.

“I extend my heartfelt congratulations to Mayor Taylor. As a passionate advocate for the community she will bring her energy and compassion for all residents in Willoughby, and foster a sense of inclusiveness for our community,” she said.
