The Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) has applauded Sunshine Coast Council Mayor and Local Government Association Queensland (LGAQ) President Mark Jamieson for an outstanding career in local government.
ALGA President Councillor Linda Scott sincerely thanked Mayor Jamieson – who announced today he was stepping down as mayor in March – for his long and effective service to councils at a local, state and national level.
“On behalf of Australia’s 537 councils, I sincerely congratulate Mayor Jamieson for his outstanding contribution to and leadership of local government,” Cr Scott said.
“Mayor Jamieson has enjoyed a wonderful career, including serving as LGAQ President for the past seven years.
“He also served on our ALGA board for four years, making a significant contribution to local government policy at the national level, and helping secure a better deal for our communities.”
“Mayor Jamieson was also an instrumental leader in championing the bid for Queensland to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2032, and leaves a considerable local, state and national legacy.”
“I wish Mayor Jamieson all the best for his future endeavours and thank him sincerely for his contributions to local government and the communities we serve.”
