Eurobodalla’s new council in place
23 December 2021
Eurobodalla’s new council has been finalised, with seven fresh faces for the 2022-2024 term.
Mathew Hatcher is mayor and the eight councillors are Tanya Dannock, Pete Diskon, David Grace, Anthony Mayne, Tubby Harrison, Rob Pollock, Amber Shutz, and Alison Worthington.
The NSW Electoral Commission declared the result today following local government elections on 4 December.
Councillor Hatcher is the shire’s fourth popularly elected Mayor, and the youngest at 39 years of age. He is one of seven new councillors, with Cr Anthony Mayne and Cr Rob Pollock the returning councillors this term.
The new councillors start work in January with an induction program that covers the local government legal and policy framework, Council’s services and budgets and the challenges facing the sector.
The first meeting of the new Council will be held in the Council Chamber at Moruya on Tuesday 8 February 2022.
Covid-19 twice forced the delay of local government elections, extending the previous term to five years and shortening the new term to September 2024 to re-align the election cycle.
