Community diversity celebrated by new Monash Mayor

Stefanie Perri, a life-long Monash resident, has been elected Monash’s Mayor for the next 12 months.

She brings experience to the role, having previously served as Monash’s Mayor in 2011/12.

Mount Waverley Ward Councillor Rebecca Paterson has been elected Deputy Mayor.

Cr Perri said diversity – of cultural backgrounds, ages, faiths and interests – was one of Monash’s greatest strengths.

“What drives my involvement in local government is the ability to truly contribute towards the creation of strong, inclusive, resilient and responsive communities,” Cr Perri said.

“I value the opportunity to celebrate our differences, and learn from each others’ cultures, faiths and different perspectives.

“This goes to the very core of why I choose to be involved in the work that I do. It’s about building community strength, cohesion, a sense of inclusiveness and belonging for all and reaching our greatest potential both collectively and individually.”

Cr Perri said under her leadership, the Council would continue to take on some of the most pressing community issues, including the prevention of violence against women and children, and the proliferation of pokies in Monash’s most vulnerable communities.

“I know they are tough issues, I understand how critically important they are, and in this term as Mayor, I won’t shy away from them,” Cr Perri said.

She said Council would also continue to advocate strongly on behalf of local residents on issues such as: arguing against proposals for over-development of two former school sites in Oakleigh South; and the need for developer Mirvac to fulfill its promise to put Waverley Park’s high-voltage powerlines underground.

“On a positive note, the State Government has said that they will begin construction works for the removal of level crossings in Clayton and Hughesdale next year,” Cr Perri said.

“This has been a key priority for the community and for Council for many years. Council will continue to advocate to, and collaborate with, the State Government for the best design outcomes for the replacement train stations.”

Cr Perri said Council was also overseeing a large infrastructure improvement program, with a focus on upgrading children’s playgrounds, sports pavilions, bike paths and footpaths.

“We want to support people in being physically active, whether that’s kids having fun on a playground, people playing sport, or people going for a walk or bike ride.”

Stefanie, 35, holds a Bachelor of Communications degree and has previously worked as an independent public relations consultant. She and her husband Alex are raising their children in Clayton, where she grew up.
