Councillor Trotter praised his colleagues for their support.

“I’d like to thank my fellow Councillors for their support and for voting for me,”

“I’d especially like to thank former Mayor Jo Beard for her guidance when I was first elected.

“Thanks also to Councillor Ruth Gstrein for her support as Deputy Mayor,"

"Her experience has been invaluable. I’ve had a steep learning curve.”

Trotter says his top priorities would be continuing to seek funding to fix the region’s roads.

“Certainly, the state of our arterial roads is the biggest concern for our residents,”

“We will continue to advocate strenuously for the investment needed to improve the arterial roads network that is essential for the safety and economic security of our residents,"

“Funding is required to upgrade local freight corridors to accommodate agriculture supply chain traffic,"

"With the agriculture sector forecast to grow, we need to future-proof the Shire in anticipation of an increasing numbers of heavy vehicles.”

Trotter says Council will also work on sourcing funding for the $6.1 million Twelve Apostles Trail from Timboon to Port Campbell.
