Victorian Local Governance Association Board Elections 2017
Nominations for VLGA Ordinary Board Member (Councillor)
Cr Lambros Tapinos
I am passionate about Local Government and the important role it plays in developing strong communities.
Having served on the VLGA Board as Treasurer, I know the VLGA’s capacity, strengths and weaknesses.
As an experienced Councillor and former Mayor, I know the issues impacting our communities in Melbourne and regional Victoria.
We must become more relevant to Councillors by providing more professional training, advice and support.
We must become a strong and respected voice working collaboratively with MAV and the State Government but not afraid to fight for issues impacting the financial health and independence of local councils like cost shifting and rates capping.
I will focus on visiting more councils and listening to their views and concerns. By working together we can achieve more and advance VLGA values we all share. I seek your support.
