Monash Council meet on Monday 24 November 7.30 pm at the Council Offices to elect a Mayor for the next 12 months.
The current Mayor, Cr Geoff Lake, and previous Mayor, Cr Micaela Drieburg, felt the anger of the community during the biggest protest Monash has ever seen. As Council proceeded with the sale of aged care residences neither Mayor was perceived being transparent or consultative. There was much dissatisfaction with answers to questions put to the Council during Public Question Time and considerable criticism of Council’s viewpoint in the press.
As this year’s vote is taken three Councillors, including the current Deputy Mayor, are on leave. Crs Davies, Zographos and Dimopoulos are standing as candidates in the imminent State election. Six of the remaining nine Councillors need to be present at the meeting for a quorum.
Members of the public may attend this meeting.
If the Mayor was elected by the people of Monash who do you think would be the next Mayor of Monash? Please comment!
