Re-Elected For Second Consecutive Term

Scenic Rim Division 2 Councillor Jeff McConnell has been re-elected for second term as Scenic Rim’s Deputy Mayor at the Ordinary Meeting of Council.
Cr McConnell was nominated for a second consecutive term in the role by Division 5 Councillor Marshall Chalk, who said: “I believe he has done a fantastic job for the last 12 months and believe he should continue.”
Also nominated was Division 3 Councillor Virginia West, who served as Deputy Mayor from 2012 to 2016.
She was nominated by Councillor Michael Enright, who said Cr West was the longest-serving Councillor in Scenic Rim’s history, having represented her community for 20 years.
Although Cr West thanked Cr Enright for his support, she declined the nomination for the role of Deputy Mayor.
“I see that we have had a lot of changes around the table and, given where we are in the election cycle, consistency and continuity are the two words that spring to my mind,” she said. “I believe it’s about consistency and continuity, not only around this table but also for our community.”
Cr McConnell said he had undertaken a wide range of professional development courses during the past 12 months to broaden his knowledge, enabling him to meet the expectations of the role of Deputy Mayor, and would continue to do so.
Mayor Greg Christensen thanked Cr McConnell for his efforts as Deputy Mayor during the past year. “I congratulate Councillor McConnell on his appointment as Deputy Mayor for the remainder of this term of Council,” he said.
Congratulations Jeff! Wishing you well in your continuing role as Deputy Mayor! Proudly from Tamborine!
