Bill’s back on the team

Isis Town and Country - - News -

IT’S been eight years since for­mer Isis Shire Mayor Bill Trevor de­parted lo­cal gov­ern­ment as a re­sult of the Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil amal­ga­ma­tion.

A de­ci­sion to con­test the 2016 Lo­cal Au­thor­ity elec­tions as a coun­cil­lor re­sulted in Cr Trevor win­ning the Di­vi­sion Two seat and last week re­ceiv­ing the sup­port of his fel­low coun­cil­lors with a suc­cess­ful bid for the po­si­tion of deputy mayor.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited to be back in lo­cal gov­ern­ment and very mo­ti­vated to make a dif­fer­ence not only for the peo­ple of Di­vi­sion Two but a con­tri­bu­tion to the Bund­aberg Re­gion gen­er­ally,” he said.

“Di­vi­sion Two is an ex­tremely large slice of the re­gion and I in­tend to make reg­u­lar vis­its to all cor­ners of my di­vi­sion to con­nect with res­i­dents.

“I al­ways have been a firm be­liever in tak­ing coun­cil to the peo­ple rather than sit­ting in an of­fice and wait­ing for them to call.

“Un­der the lead­er­ship of Mayor Jack Dempsey we have a per­son with a strong fo­cus on want­ing to make things hap­pen...

“Jack is a very pos­i­tive per­son with a pas­sion for the re­gion and I’m cer­tain his en­thu­si­asm will flow to his coun­cil team.”

Cr Trevor said he hoped to bring the Mayor to Childers in com­ing weeks so he could meet with lo­cals and get a feel for the com­mu­nity.

“Right now the task at hand is to par­tic­i­pate in the brief­ings that will al­low all coun­cil­lors to come up to speed re­gard­ing the po­si­tion of Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil and the cur­rent de­liv­ery of its projects and ser­vices.”

In ad­di­tion to his role as deputy mayor, Cr Trevor is also spokesper­son for the coun­cil’s En­vi­ron­ment and Nat­u­ral Re­sources port­fo­lio.

Cr Trevor said he would be avail­able reg­u­larly at the coun­cil’s Childers ser­vice cen­tre in the old Isis Shire Coun­cil Cham­bers.

“I urge any­one who needs to speak with me to con­tact me on 0429 873 103.”
