Youth Councillor Grace Faulder to Co-chair June Council meeting

03 Jun 2015

Blue Mountains Youth Councillor Grace Faulder has been chosen to co-chair the 23 June 2015 Council meeting with the Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill.

The Deputy Mayor Cr Chris Van der Kley attended the May Ordinary Youth Council meeting as a member of the Youth Council's Advisory Committee. Cr Van der Kley assisted by drawing a random name from those Youth Councillors who put their names forward for the co-chairing opportunity.

Grace is a new, incoming Youth Councillor. A Springwood resident and student at Penrith Selective High School, Grace joined the Youth Council to become a voice for younger people in society.

"I participated in the YMCA NSW Junior Parliament and I've become a lot more passionate about issues that are important to me and this has given me enough confidence to believe that I can make a difference," said the fourteen-year-old.

"I believe that the Blue Mountains Youth Council will allow me to voice my opinion and take action on issues that are important in our community such as Youth Homelessness and I would also find others that have similar beliefs and passions," said Grace.

Everyone from the general public is welcome to attend the meeting, taking place from 7:30pm at the Council Chambers at 2 Civic Place, Katoomba. This Blue Mountains City Council meeting will welcome the new term of Youth Council and thank the outgoing Youth Councillors for all their good work.
