Shire Councillor Steve Holland elected to VLGA Board


Briars Ward Councillor Steve Holland has been elected the Victorian Local Government Association (VLGA) board for a three year period commencing 1 July 2021.

The VLGA board is committed to excellence in its role as the governing body of the VLGA – setting long term strategy and policy for the benefit of its members and the local government sector as well as providing risk and governance oversight for the organisation.

Cr Holland’s appointment continues the recent trend of Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors representing the community on state-wide forums.

Earlier this year the Victorian Government appointed Mayor Councillor Despi O’Connor to the 2021 Local Government Mayoral Advisory Panel and Deputy Mayor Councillor Sarah Race to its Gender Equality Advisory Committee.
