Newly-elected Subcouncil 3 chairperson, Helen Carstens says she will work towards a vibrant and approachable Subcouncil that is ready to serve and assist.
Councillor for Ward 5, Edgemead and Bothasig, Carstens was re-elected in the elections in August and now elected on 15 November as Subcouncil chair.
“I am grateful to the Subcouncil staff who have tirelessly managed the Subcouncils, under much duress at times, to keep them operational during this phase,” said Carstens, “I would like to have an open-door policy and I look forward to engaging with the different communities.”
Subcouncil 3 covers 6 wards and a number of ward and proportional councillors. Wards included are Wards 1, 4, 5, 70, 107 and 113. This is an increase of wards and councillors from what Subcouncil 3 had prior to the elections and the changing of boundaries.
Cllr Carstens says she is up to the challenge and is looking forward to what the new position will bring.
