Media Statement

All comments are attributable to Committee for Geelong CEO Rebecca Casson.

The Committee for Geelong welcomes the formal appointment of the new Administrators for the City of Greater Geelong.

The Committee for Geelong believes that the new Administrators are all excellently qualified appointees, and we wish them every success in their new roles.

We specifically acknowledge the Committee for Geelong's previous Executive Director, Peter Dorling, as one of the Administrators, and we congratulate Peter on his appointment.

The City of Greater Geelong is undertaking a challenging transition, and it may be unsettling for the staff and the community in the short term. However, in the longer term the Committee for Geelong is optimistic that the formal appointment of the three Administrators can bring some stability to our City, which does has a positive future ahead of it.

The Committee remains dedicated to supporting the long term growth and prosperity of Geelong. We look forward to working with the new Administrators and the City of Greater Geelong to ensure a shared vision for a strong and resilient Geelong is delivered.
