Cr Libro Mustica was elected Mayor of Moira Shire Council for 2019/20 at a special meeting in Cobram last Wednesday, November 6.
Cr Peter Lawless was also re-elected to serve as Deputy Mayor.
This is Cr Mustica’s third consecutive term as Mayor; no other councillor has served more than two consecutive terms as Mayor of Moira Shire.
“I am honoured to be re-elected as Mayor for this last term of council before the local government elections in 2020,” Cr Mustica said.
“I am deeply passionate and committed to further advancing the interests of Moira Shire.
“I believe it is vital for members of the community to be confident in their local council and for locals to have a voice and know that we are here to listen.
“We need to continue investing in our people and create communities where our youth can not only get a job but develop a lifelong career rather than moving away to the city.”
Cr Lawless said he was “honoured to be elected Deputy Mayor for a second time”.
“I will work with all groups across the shire to achieve fantastic results for all,” Cr Lawless said.
