Noosa Mayor Clare Stewart has been connecting with her counterparts from neighbouring councils in the spirit of collaboration.

Regional support and ideas-sharing are among the topics discussed at the mayoral meet-and-greets, including yesterday’s catch-up with Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson.

“We all benefit from collaboration, especially working together to seek support, funding and other commitments from state and federal governments,” Mayor Stewart said.

“As neighbours, it’s good to know we can rely on each other in times of trouble and as friends we can work together to improve our regions and share ideas.”

Cr Stewart recently met with Gympie’s new Mayor Glen Hartwig and Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery.

“All of our communities have felt the effects of COVID-19. This is but one example where standing together puts us in a stronger positon to advocate for our residents and businesses doing it tough,” Mayor Stewart said.

“I look forward to working closely with all of our neighbours for the collective good of our individual communities.”

Mayor Jamieson said that it was a great opportunity to meet with Mayor Stewart and looked forward to continuing to build the relationship.

“Our councils and our communities have many areas of mutual interest and I look forward to an ongoing productive and positive relationship,” Mayor Jamieson said.
