Leading the new council, is re-elect her Worship the Mayor, Athina Pascoe-Bell, who said;

“I’d like to thank all those that nominated for council and congratulate the successful elected members. I’m looking forward to working with my members on completing the delivery of projects such as the Gray Community Hall, Zuccoli Community Hub and the revitalisation of the Palmerston swimming pool.

It’s also an exciting time with a number of initiatives recently being released such as the Inclusive, Diverse and Accessible Framework and the Palmerston Local Economic Plan. These two documents alone stand for the type of community that people want to live in. They will be the basis of many future decisions for council, and I’m really proud of the work that has been done, and what we will be able to deliver for the future of Palmerston.”

The new council will be officially sworn in, taking an Affirmation of Office, at a small but significant ceremony on Tuesday 14 September at the Palmerston Recreation Centre.
