Four piece pop-punk band Stand Out was crowned the winner of the 2019 Sounds of Glen Eira on Friday 28 June.
Cr Pilling was elected to represent Rosstown Ward at the November 2020 Council elections. He also served on Council from 2008 to 2016, including two terms as Mayor — in 2014 and 2016.
In a statement issued on 1 April 2022 Glen Eira Mayor Cr Jim Magee said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Cr Pilling for his dedicated service to the Glen Eira community and, in particular, to the residents of Rosstown Ward. Cr Pilling has been a valued colleague and passionate community advocate and I wish him only the best for the future.”
Councillor Pilling’s resignation creates an extraordinary vacancy in Rosstown Ward. The Victorian Electoral Commission will now initiate a countback process. Further details will be published on Council’s website as soon as they are available.
