"Implementing local government reform, leading the sector's advocacy for state and federal elections, and preparing for next year's council elections are a few of our current priorities."

"Mr Jury has the capacity to step in and lead the LGA through these immediate challenges, as well as the vision to provide long term direction and stability to the Association."

Mr Jury will commence in the role of LGA CEO on Monday 11 October.
