“To represent the residents of Glen Eira on a Councillor level is a privilege, but representing our Council as Mayor, is truly an honour,” he said.

“Over the next 12 months, I am looking forward to seeing a number of important capital works projects take shape, including the commencement of the Carnegie Memorial Swimming Pool redevelopment, and the completion of Lord Reserve Pavilion, Murrumbeena Community Hub and the Bentleigh Library and Youth Hub.

“It will also be very exciting to see Moongala Women’s Community House move into a new home at Moorleigh Village in Bentleigh East.”

Cr Magee’s family emigrated from Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1970. He is married with two sons and has lived in Bentleigh East since 1988. His weekdays involve work and Council commitments, and on weekends he is a keen bowler with the Coatesville Bowls Club
