Green councillors unite

I attended a councillor development conference this weekend, it was a great opportunity to network with councillors from all corners of Victoria. What became very apparent to me was that the Shire of Yarra Ranges' council was a very cohesive and united team with a great deal of professionalism and dedication to their role. It was terrific to learn about councillor's experiences (from the very new to the very experienced) and from my point of view focus particularly on ethics as well as the inside running on meeting procedures from meeting guru Nick Renton.

It was also great to catch up with fellow Greens Councillors, there is no doubt that the Green point of view adds a great dimension to local government and enables sustainable action on a whole range of local matters.
