Nomination for VLGA Ordinary Board Member (Councillor)
Cr Cynthia Watson
I seek to represent sector advocacy and reform through exemplary leadership, skilled management and personal integrity. A Councillor at Boroondara, I am professionally qualified as an Urban Planner/Land Economist and Educator and have completed the Company Directors Course. I will make significant contributions to improving the quality of member training in key sector knowledge; provide strong advocacy and intelligent leadership on critical policy issues; strengthen community by promoting effective collaboration; reducing participation friction; and encourage bi-partisan, forwarding-thinking strategic focus to planning together as a Board. Serving my community continuously for 18 years, I am an innovative problem solver and experienced community leader, having served notably as President of the Balwyn East Kindergarten and President of the Greythorn Park Tennis Club. I understand the interconnectedness of our physical and social community capital, and local government. I have the drive, enthusiasm and commitment to contribute to an effective, respected and successful VLGA.
