Labor Councillor Anoulack Chanthivong was last Thursday elected as Mayor of Campbelltown City Council for the 2011-2012 term, with fellow Labor colleague Councillor Mollie Thomas elected Deputy Mayor. Both councillors were elected unanimously and unopposed to these roles.

At 34 years of age, Cr Chanthivong is one of Campbelltown City Council’s youngest elected mayors. He was first elected to Council in April 2004, and was president of the Macarthur Regional Organisation of Councils (MACROC) for the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 terms.

Cr Chanthivong said it was a great honour to be elected as Mayor of Campbelltown, and he looked forward to representing the community over the next 12 months.

“Campbelltown is undergoing an exciting period of transition as it establishes itself as a major centre of south west Sydney, and I am committed to working with my fellow councillors on managing our city’s growth and future challenges,” Cr Chanthivong said.

“I am also seeking to promote further opportunities for Campbelltown City as the region continues to expand, and working toward a positive future for residents based on quality lifestyle opportunities.

“I look forward to working alongside my deputy, Cr Mollie Thomas, and I’m certain her passion, dedication and experience will serve the community well.

“Over the next 12 months, I am interested in meeting with as many people as I possibly can throughout our city, and hearing from all sections of the community,” Cr Chanthivong added.

“Campbelltown is set to experience further change with major residential developments unfolding on our doorstep, and significant growth throughout the Macarthur region.

“One of the key challenges for Council moving forward will be how we manage this influx of people and support growth with the necessary infrastructure into the future,” he said.
