As many of you are aware we are grieving the loss of City of Sydney Deputy Lord Mayor, Robyn Kemmis. Robyn was an outstanding Councillor and community activist and I very much enjoyed working constructively with her on Council.
As a result of her vacancy on Council, I have entered an agreement with the Lord Mayor Clover Moore, to ensure the continuing stable functioning of the City of Sydney Council. You can see the full agreement here.
The agreement will allow me a greater role in shaping the City’s policies and programs. Importantly it also ensures that I will continue to vote, as always, in line with Greens policies and principles. The agreement has been endorsed by Greens local groups, as per our ongoing commitment to grassroots democracy.
I hope that this agreement will lead to enhanced productive and progressive governance at a Council I am proud to represent.
