Council elects new Mayor


Bass Coast Shire Council elected Cr Jordan Crugnale as its new Mayor at a Statutory Meeting this evening.

Cr Crugnale said being elected to the role of Mayor was an honour and a role she wouldn’t take lightly.

“I’d like to thank my fellow Councillors for their support. I believe the role of Mayor, by its very nature, means showing commitment to and being a voice for all the community. I promise to show leadership, continue our strategic direction as a Council and work collaboratively with Councillors, staff and the community to achieve our priorities. I look forward to representing Bass Coast Shire as Mayor.”

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge Cr Brown for her hard work and inclusive leadership over the past 12 months. She has grown in the role and lead us through some challenging issues,” Cr Crugnale said.

Cr Bradley Drew was elected Deputy Mayor.

Cr Brown said her year as Mayor had been hard work, but extremely worthwhile.

“It has been a privilege and a great experience to serve as the Mayor and represent our wonderful community. I value the opportunity I was given and now look forward to supporting the new Mayor over the next 12 months.”
