Business Victor Harbor held a special luncheon on Friday, January 12, with guests being the region’s leaders.
Member for Finniss Michael Pengilly, MLC Terry Stephens, Liberal candidate for Finniss at the March state election David Basham, Member for Mayo Rebekha Sharkie, Acting CEO of the City of Victor Harbor Geoff Sheridan, City of Victor Harbor mayor Graham Philp and incoming CEO for the City of Victor Harbor Victoria MacKirdy were in attendance and participated in a question and answer.
Victor Harbor’s business leaders were in attendance at the Hotel Grosvenor and topics covered was the lack of cohesion at the City of Victor Harbor, tourism, how to attract business investment and youth to the region, council expenditure and the sculptures on Granite Island.
Incoming CEO Ms MacKirdy handled the questions with poise and purpose and showed great respect for elected members.
“The City of Victor Harbor is an operation governed by people elected by the community and it is a diverse group of people and we must work together,” she said.
“The sculptures on Granite Island are under the management of DEWNR (Department of Environment Water & Natural Resources) and David Handley of Sculptures by the Sea. The feedback received is that it would be better if there were more local sculptures keeping with the tradition and environment of Granite Island.”
Ms MacKirdy starts as CEO on Monday, January 15.
