Southern Grampians Shire Council has expressed its deep sadness at the passing of “former Councillor and friend”, Greg McAdam, who passed away recently after a long period of illness.
First elected to Council in 2016, Greg (pictured) was re-elected to serve a second term in 2020. He served as a Councillor until April this year when he made the decision to resign due to his failing health.
“Greg was highly respected by both the community and the organisation and always acted in the best interests of the Southern Grampians Community. He performed his role as Councillor with passion, fairness, integrity and kindness,” Council said in a statement.
“His commitment in particular, to the future direction, growth and success of the Hamilton Regional Livestock Exchange is a wonderful legacy to leave and we know one that Greg would be proud of.
“Greg will be very missed by his fellow Councillors, Council Staff, and our entire community. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jan and the family during this difficult time.”
