Mayor and Deputy Mayor elected for 2022–23 Council year

At a Special Council Meeting on Wednesday 23 November, councillor Jim Magee was re-elected as Mayor and councillor Anne-Marie Cade elected as Deputy Mayor.

Cr Magee is serving his fourth term on Council. Cr Magee previously served as Mayor in 2015 and 2021 and Deputy Mayor in 2017 and 2020.

Cr Magee said he felt privileged to be able to lead Glen Eira City Council for another year and continue the work of 2021–2022.

“In the next 12 months I will continue my focus on our key challenges like planning for the future, building our infrastructure, creating and improving our open space, providing a seamless customer service and advocating for our community,” he said.

He also said he was prepared to lead wider discussions about the future of local government.

“I feel it’s time for a major shake up of local government in Victoria — the model hasn’t kept pace with the challenges we now face,” he said.

Cr Anne-Marie Cade was elected Deputy Mayor. Cr Cade is serving her second term as a councillor. This is her first time as Deputy Mayor.

“I’m truly humbled and honoured to have the opportunity to serve the residents of Glen Eira in the role of Deputy Mayor,” she said.

“I ran for Council because I wanted to make a difference rather than sitting on the outside and being critical of what happens in Council.”

She said strategy, culture and governance were the three pillars that make a council successful.

“I’m committed to working with a diverse group of councillors to address complex challenges and engage in genuine collaboration as I see the importance of working together collectively.”

“With leadership comes responsibility, and I am committed to working with you to get really good outcomes for Glen Eira.”
