New Deputy Mayor for Glenorchy


Lifelong Glenorchy resident Bec Thomas is pledging to get the job done for ratepayers, after being voted in as the Council's Deputy Mayor.

Now an electorate officer for Liberal Sue Hickey, she was elected to the number 2 job by her fellow Aldermen in a secret ballot last night.

Alderman Thomas is looking forward to seeing roughly a billion dollars worth of development in coming years, including new play and recreation projects on the Montrose Bay foreshore and Giblin Reserve.

She says NBL owner Larry Kestelman's $60 million proposal for the Derwent Entertainment Centre is just one iron in the fire.

"We've also got funding for some new Sport and Recreation facilities at Eady Street and North Chigwell oval and some redevelopments of Football Federation facilities at KGV, so lots happening in Glenorchy," she said.
