STATEMENT ON KEVIN WARD: SERVICE TO URALLA COMMMUNITY

STATEMENT ON KEVIN WARD: SERVICE TO URALLA COMMMUNITY

Monday, 5 November 2018

I was deeply saddened last week to learn, that due to ill health, Councillor Kevin Ward has resigned his position on Uralla Shire Council.

Kevin has served Uralla and the wider district with absolute commitment and distinction over the past 14 years and his contribution has always been with the best interests of his community at heart.

Having previously been in Kevin’s shoes on Gunnedah Shire Council, I know it is not an easy road to walk at times, but Kevin always undertook his duties with real diligence and compassion – and always with a smile on his dial. In addition to his work on council, Kevin has been a tireless champion of the community and particularly local sporting groups.

I have always enjoyed his friendship, forthright advice on occasion, and admired his passion just to get things done for whatever project or organisation he is involved in.

On behalf of the community he has served faithfully for so many years, I say thank you Kevin for your efforts and your big heart. Your absence at the council chamber table will be felt by everyone.

I’m sure the community joins me in wishing Kevin and Sandra all the very best in the difficult time ahead as they both focus all of their attention on each other.

One thing is for sure, Kevin Ward will be a hard act to follow.
