Recognition for our dear leader’s contribution

“It’s mine – all mine!”

It was a scene worthy of Midsomer Murders – historic town hall, uniformed brass band, dignitaries mingling with citizenry, local Mayor Cr Matthew Koce in Mayoral robe and chains – the City of Stonnington’s Citizen of the Year awards 2013. Orrong Group’s fearless leader Margot Carroll was awarded the Mayor’s Award of the Year 2013 for outstanding voluntary service to the community.

We thank Cr Koce and his fellow councillors for this recognition.  It was a moment of respite and reward as we head into the fourth year of this battle – one we cannot win without Council.

Margot used her speech to highlight the benefits of becoming involved in local issues – meeting new people, shaping your community. She also performed several songs of her own composition which seemed to some to be taking advantage of her new status.

Congratulations Margot – your award is entirely deserved. If we do secure a sensible planning development we expect your face to adorn our stamps and currency.
