Effective communication underpins all of this - it is important that everyone really understands the role and capacity of Council.”

“It’s a privilege and honour to serve my family on Masig and Torres Strait. Let’s dream big for our people together. Building a better you is the first step to building a better Torres Strait. I will finish with the quote: ‘Our children are our only hope for the future, but we are their only hope for their present and their future.’ Let’s do this together - let’s dream as one.”
