Whelan remains deputy mayor of North Burnett
AFTER retaining her seat in Division 3, Faye Whelan has again been voted deputy mayor by her colleagues and is excited for the future.
"I wanted the job because of my experience in the role, because this will be my second term as deputy mayor," Mrs Whelan said.
"I've been in local government for 12 years, and I can bring my experience to assist the new council in their duties."
Mrs Whelan has a deep love for the North Burnett and has worked tirelessly for over a decade at improving it as best she can in her council roles.
"We did a fantastic job with the previous council. I truly believe that, and I loved working with my previous colleagues and look forward to working with the new team," Mrs Whelan said.
"My mission is to help the new mayor achieve what she wants to achieve, and hopefully together with the rest of the team we can advance the North Burnett."
With a mostly new council team, Mrs Whelan's experience will be crucial.
"We've got four new councillors and three old councillors, which creates a good mix of experience and good ideas," Mrs Whelan said.
"I am very excited for the North Burnett, and I think it is going to be a fantastic four years."
Mrs Whelan said she did not take on the role of deputy mayor for the title but to allow her more avenues to help the North Burnett.
"I am absolutely honoured, but that being said, I don't do it for the titles," Mrs Whelan said.
"It affords me access to certain meetings that I think my knowledge would be of great benefit to."
