​Clare Raffan has been elected Deputy Mayor of the City of Canterbury Bankstown, replacing Nadia Saleh.

Councillor Raffan, who will hold the position for the next 12 months, defeated Philip Madirazza eight votes to four (Glen Waud and Linda Downey were absent and Linda Eisler abstained).
“I am really proud and it is a great honour to be elected Deputy Mayor of this Council. It is an exciting Council and a fantastic one to be a part of,” Councillor Raffan said.
“I am thrilled to be working alongside Mayor Asfour, General Manager Matthew Stewart, the Executive leadership team and with my fellow Councillors, who all come together to represent the community really well.”
Councillor Raffan also acknowledged outgoing Deputy Mayor, Councillor Nadia Saleh.
“All the effort and energy she has put in is extremely honourable and I congratulate her on her grace, calmness and generosity,” Councillor Raffan said.
“I hope I can fill her place with as much dedication and effort that she has presented in the Deputy Mayor’s role.”
Mayor Asfour congratulated Councillor Raffan on her appointment.
“Last night marked a new chapter for our City and I look forward to working with Councillor Raffan, as we continue to improve the level of service the community has come to expect and deserves,” he said.
“Councillor Raffan is a strong advocate for our community and I have no doubt she will continue the good work carried out by Councillor Saleh.
“Councillor Saleh has and continues to be a huge advocate for women, refugees, and migrants in Canterbury-Bankstown.
“I would like to thank her for her support and hard work. We certainly made a strong leadership team and I am confident that will continue with Councillor Raffan, as we continue to deliver an ambitious $91 million Capital Works program in 2018-19.”
