Goulburn Mulwaree Council last night recognised the service of Cr Alfie Walker, Cr Denzil Sturgiss and Cr Sam Rowland who are not standing for re-election at the poll set for 4th December 2021.
The three Councillors were formally recognised for their excellent community service, and presented with plaques as a keepsake.
“Alfie, Denzil and Sam have been wonderful advocates for our region, giving up countless hours in community service, and I would like to thank them on behalf of Goulburn Mulwaree Council” said General Manager, Warwick Bennett.
“The role of a Councillor can be a thankless task at times, and you must listen to the views of wide ranging community members before making difficult decisions. These three have acted with integrity and intelligence during their service, and I wish them all the best in the future.”
