Now that we new City of Parramatta councillors have just completed our schedule of informative
induction workshops and completed our first ordinary Council meeting,
I have been able to reflect on our hectic first month on the job.
First, I would like to thank all who exercised their democratic right to
vote for their council representatives, including for me as the first Greens
councillor for Parramatta.
This opportunity was welcome after being denied the right to vote in
2016 as a result of our council amalgamation with a government appointed administrator.
