Welcoming our newest Glen Eira citizens

Belated New Year greetings to all! Hope everyone had an enjoyable break.

The first council meeting will be on Tuesday Feb 2nd with activities and events getting into full swing next week.

One of the most enjoyable events as a councillor to attend is the regular Citizenship Ceromonies that take place every 6-8 weeks throughout the year. These nights are certainly an important event to celebrate, acknowledge and welcome our newest citizens. This Australia Day approximately two hundred residents at the town hall will become Australian citizens.

For many this is the culmination of a long journey and it is always a pleasure to be be a part of this ceromony and chat with participants over refreshments after.

- The diversity and cultural heritage of all in our community in Glen Eira is certainly something to be celebrated and valued!


  1. Councillor,

    Please no repeat of your unfair and unwarranted attack on a resident of yours using the privilege of the Council floor to do it when Council resumes.We expect better from our elected representatives. My feeling is your inexperience was played upon by the Jewish Councillor who set it up to ensure it was not only a Jewish only attack.

  2. Anom , your comments relate to a different issue that has been widely canvassed on
    another blog - i disagree with your interpretation, and reject your 'set up' summise-
    I am quite capable of thinking for myself!
