Councillors elected Nathan Conroy for a second successive term as Mayor of Frankston City at a special Council Meeting last night (Thursday 17 November).

Councillor Liam Hughes has been elected as the youngest ever Deputy Mayor in Frankston City’s history and both Councillors will serve in these positions for the next 12 months.

This is Mayor Conroy’s first term on Council and he has initially elected by his Councillor colleagues as Deputy Mayor in November 2020 before being elected for his first term as Mayor in November, 2021.

Mayor Conroy thanked Councillors for their support, noting it was the first time a Frankston City Mayor has served back to back terms for more than 20 years.

“I said it last year and I will reconfirm my commitment to our community that I will continue to work hard and contribute to the best of my ability.

“I am so proud to work with a group of Councillors that are all committed to working for the community, representing their values and making decisions for the greater good.”

The Mayor added: “It continues to be a great pleasure of mine to get out and meet as many people as possible and be there because I want to. We live in one of the greatest City in the world. I may be biased but I do believe it.

“The City is on the rise literally and metaphorically. This Council is giving developers the certainty to invest in Frankston City and we are encouraging businesses like the Sporting Globe, Hotel Lona, Oliver’s Corner, Betty’s Burgers and the Hop Shop to the City.

“Thank you so much – we have had a wonderful year and I can’t wait to get started and continue on as I started in November last year.”

Deputy Mayor Liam Hughes said he is determined to get the best outcomes for residents, adding: “I have always been there for the community – you are my focus. I am here for the community and I will keep pushing for the community.”

Council CEO Phil Cantillon congratulated Mayor Conroy and Deputy Mayor Liam Hughes on being elected to the roles. 

“I look forward to working with them both in the coming year to achieve great outcomes for the Frankston City community.

“Thank you as well to the outgoing Deputy Mayor Suzette Tayler, for her leadership and commitment as a truly passionate advocate for Frankston City,” Mr Cantillon said.
