Councillor Stephanie Asher - Mayor

The portfolios have been adjusted to better address council’s different strategic areas of focus. They’ve been aligned with councillors’ strengths, preferences and areas to learn.

I thank the council group for its work over the past two years in the previous portfolios. I look forward to seeing more passion and excellent work in the new portfolios over the next 11 months.
