Councillor Robert Banham will continue to serve as Mayor of Glen Innes Severn Council after he was re-elected to the position at the Ordinary Council Meeting today (Thursday, 21 September 2023).

Councillor Troy Arandale was also re-elected as Deputy Mayor for Council.

Cr Banham, of Emmaville NSW, was first elected as Mayor for Glen Innes Severn Council in January 2022.

Cr Banham said it is with great sense of responsibility and honour to accept the position as the Mayor for the next 12 months and expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the Councillors he has worked with since his election in 2022.

“As I continue to take on the role of Mayor, I want to assure the community that I remain committed to making the Glen Innes Severn Council area the best place to live, work and foster a great family life, “Cr Banham said.

“Our community is rich in history, culture and natural beauty, and it’s our mission to preserve and enhance these assets for generations to come. Your voices matter, and I encourage you to engage with me and your Councillors; so together, we can achieve our vision to build a brighter future for Glen Innes Severn Council,” he said.

Banham has been a Grazier Woolgrower for nearly 20 years around Emmaville and moved permanently to the family sheep property in 2016.

Among his outstanding involvement in the community, Cr Banham is a Council delegate for the Emmaville War Memorial Hall Committee, President and active member of the Emmaville Rural Fire Service (RFS) and Council Delegate for GLENRAC.

Cr Banham will lead Council through to the next NSW Local Government elections on 14 September 2024.
