Councillor representation on committees, peak industry bodies, community organisations and associations

In conducting the business of Council and representing Council’s interests in the wider community, Greater Dandenong City Council has formal representation and liaison with a wide number of committees, peak industry bodies and regional and community associations.

While the Mayor of the day is typically Council’s key representative, the volume of associations where Council seeks an involvement is such that representation needs to be shared among all Councillors to ensure a manageable workload.

The following link provides details of the organisations with council-appointed liaisons and representatives to committees, peak industry bodies, regional associations and community associations for the current Councillor term.

I am committed to developing the city’s future and addressing resident’s needs and would like to achieve a number of goals during my time as a Councillor.
Since I can remember I have wanted to be a councillor, serving the local community and helping people.
I have been a local resident for the past 22 years, ever since I have migrated to Australia.
Our neighbourhood is a great place to live but it’s time for a fresh approach.
I am a proud Dandenong resident who has called this great city home for more than 40 years.
My priority is to listen more to the community and improve community services and facilities.
I work to raise the profile of issues facing less privileged members of the community.
I will work for a safer, stronger, fairer community, providing high quality facilities and services.
My vision for Greater Dandenong is to attract new residents and visitors, support local jobs and businesses.
I look forward to setting goals for how our council can be the most well-run, efficient and responsive council in Victoria.
I grew up in Keysborough and having spent most of my life here the needs of our residents and ratepayers are my top priority.
