Golden Plains Shire Council re-elected Cr Owen Sharkey as the Mayor of Golden Plains Shire Council for 2019-2020 at a Special Meeting of Council at Bannockburn Shire Hall last night.

At the same meeting, Councillors also re-elected Cr Joanne Gilbert as the Deputy Mayor of Golden Plains Shire for 2019-2020.

Cr Sharkey was elected to Golden Plains Shire Council in November 2016, and served as Mayor since 7 November 2018. As Mayor, Cr Sharkey is a member of Council’s Audit and Risk Committee, and over the past year has represented Council at the G21 Board of Directors, Tourism Greater Geelong and the Bellarine Board, Central Highlands Councils Victoria and Peri Urban Group of Rural Councils. He lives with his family in Batesford and works in Bannockburn.

Cr Sharkey, who was joined by family and friends at the mayoral election, spoke about the busy year just gone, and the immense privilege of receiving a second-term as Mayor from his fellow Councillors in the Chamber.

“It’s an honour and a privilege to be elected Mayor for another year, and I thank my fellow Councillors for their support again this year.”

“In the past three years, Council has delivered on many key commitments and objectives. And yet, in our busy, growing communities, we’ve got important challenges to face and opportunities to work on in the future.”

“I look forward to the year ahead and to achieving the many goals we have for Golden Plains Shire.”
