Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 10 February 2021

Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest
Congratulations to all Australia Day nominees and award winners, well done, and a very happy birthday to our very own centennial Mrs Butler. Also welcome to our country to the new Australians naturalised during the Australia Day Ceremony.

The longest serving female mayor in New South Wales, Lilliane Brady has passed away at the age of 90. Mayor Brady has been remembered as a legend and a wonderful leader. Ms Brady had received a Lifetime Achievement Award and an Order of Australia medal. Ms Brady was mayor of the outback mining town of Cobar for almost 23 years, and a local councillor for almost 38 years. In 2020, Ms Brady was honoured to receive the Minister for Local Government Award for her commitment to increasing participation of women in local government.
The mayor was known for not suffering fools, and once when complimented by a Minister on what she was wearing at a Local Government Conference, Ms Brady replied by saying “Ï’m here for finance, not romance.”
I am so sorry I never got to meet Mayor Brady, and what a wonderful motivational speaker she would have been for such events as the Women Leading in Local Government Program 2021. A true inspiration to the 90 Queensland female Councillors currently undertaking the program.

Friends of the Forest invite residents who are interested in their forest care project to meet on 3rd March 2021. Numbers are restricted to COVID needs. Please contact Carolita Fuentes 0435 411 376 to confirm your attendance.

Following the success of the Stonehouse Open Day held in 2019, the historical Stonehouse Open Days will be held on 24th and 25th July this year. Further information to follow.

It is wonderful to see that the local Show Societies are planning for their 2021 shows, and that other local community groups are also planning their events for 2021. Let’s all hope that things continue to go well during the year and that there are no unforeseen circumstances that will prevent the successful staging of the planned events.
