Mayor of Blacktown, Cr Stephen Bali, was unanimously re-elected President of the Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (WSROC) at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting last week.

“It is a privilege to be re-elected as WSROC President for a second term. WSROC has achieved a lot in the last 12 months, we have a great team of Directors and there is still much more work to be done,” said Cr Bali.

“Over the coming year I hope we can make further advancements on critical issues such as tolling reform, urban heat, public transport, refugee settlement, Western Sydney Airport and infrastructure funding reform.

Mayor of Fairfield, Cr Frank Carbone was promoted to the position of Senior Vice President following 12 months in the Junior Vice President role.

“I’m proud to continue representing Fairfield City and Greater Western Sydney residents on the WSROC Board,” said Cr Carbone.

"It’s an exciting time for Western Sydney with continued investment and proposals of city-making infrastructure that can help strengthen the region’s liveability and economy.”

“I will continue to advocate for positive change to unlock the full potential of Greater Western Sydney,” he said.

Deputy Mayor of Hawkesbury City Council, Cr Barry Calvert was appointed Junior Vice President.

“I am honoured to be appointed as Junior Vice President of WSROC and look forward to working with fellow councillors to continue the proud history that WSROC has developed since the early 1970’s.

“WSROC has shown itself to be very responsive to changes in western Sydney and its role has never been more important as we advance into a new era of growth in our region,” said Cr Calvert.

Cumberland’s Cr George Campbell has been appointed Treasurer following his return to the WSROC Board.

“It's an honour to represent Cumberland Council on the Board of WSROC and to be elected to the position of WSROC Treasurer. 

“WSROC has a long history of bringing together its member councils and working in their common interests to the benefit of the people of Western Sydney. The scale on which WSROC operates and its unity gives strength to our common purpose and results in extraordinary achievements. 

“I look forward to adding my contribution to the efforts of my fellow Board members to help make Western Sydney a better place to live.

WSROC has also welcomed four new Directors following local government elections in September.

Both Cumberland and City of Parramatta councils re-confirmed their membership electing Lord Mayor Andrew Wilson (Parramatta), Cr Benjamin Barrak (Parramatta), Cr Paul Garrard (Cumberland) and Cr George Campbell (Cumberland) as their representatives.

President Bali said “It is exciting to welcome councillors from both Cumberland and Parramatta back to the WSROC Board after 18 months of administration. I look forward to their ongoing input over the coming year.”
