Eight new faces will join Frankston City Council after a massive shake-up in the 2020 council elections. Making up the council are Nathan Conroy, David Asker and Suzette Tayler in North-East Ward; Stephen Hughes, Kris Bolam and Sue Baker in North-West Ward; and Brad Hill, Claire Harvey and Liam Hughes in South Ward.

Of the five sitting councillors who stood for re-election, only Cr Bolam was successful. Veterans Colin Hampton and Glenn Aitken, along with Michael O’Reilly and Steve Toms, did not get over the line. Decisions by former councillors Brian Cunial, Quinn McCormack, Sandra Mayer and Lillian O’Connor to not stand again contributed to the shake-up.

Newly elected councillors Tayler, Hill and Asker have all previously served on the council. Cr Asker posted online that he wanted the council to focus on priorities including public safety, infrastructure and the delivery of necessary services. Cr Hill said he supported appropriate development, rate capping and a “working relationship” with all levels of government. Cr Tayler said she supported upgrading sporting facilities as well as planning frameworks to protect neighbourhood character.

CEO Phil Cantillon congratulated the successful candidates and thanked all 35 nominees for their dedication to the campaign. Mr Cantillon said the new council would offer a positive mix of experience and fresh perspectives. “Our new council includes one incumbent, three who have served previously and five first-time councillors. This is an exciting time for Frankston City – our councillors have such a diverse array of experience to draw on to get the best outcomes for the community and I’m sure they can’t wait to get started.”

Almost 80 per cent of enrolled residents voted in this year’s postal election and Mr Cantillon thanked them for having their say. “I’m looking forward to working with our community and the new council to build on our hard work towards making Frankston City the lifestyle capital of Victoria.”

The new mayor will be elected at a special meeting at 7pm on Monday, November 16.
