Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : October 22 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, October 23, 2008 5 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au While party-goers wait, one girl gets icing on the cake TODDLERS got a taste of Children's Week celebrations this week when they helped the playgroup at Strathfield Community Centre turn two. The youngsters also enjoyed chocolate cake, a teddy bear's picnic, had their faces painted and got the chance to cuddle some cute farmyard animals. Tuesday's event at the Homebush centre was organised by Strathfield Council with partial funding provided by Families NSW. NSW Children's Week runs until October 28 and recognises a key component of our community, children. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP206057 No confidence vote in mayor SHIREEN KHALIL Should the mayor keep his job? Tell us online at www.innerwestweekly.com.au A VOTE of no confidence in Strathfield's newly-elected Mayor Keith Kwon was passed at the first council meeting for this term. Cr Kwon was voted mayor the previous week after a tied vote resulted in a ballot draw from a lolly jar. Independent Cr Danny Lim moved the no confidence motion, and said it meant ''the council loses faith and trust in the mayor and they are duty-bound to re- sign''. ''It is the most powerful motion that can be moved in council and has not been successfully moved in Strathfield Council in 123 years,'' Cr Lim told the Inner-West Weekly. ''No mayor has ever lost the support of his/her council.'' The motion was supported by all councillors except Labor deputy mayor Cr Hope Brett-Bowen and Cr Sundar Eswaren. Cr Kwon had left the room for the vote. He said later he was disap- pointed but his position was to ''ensure that the community re- tains its confidence in us as a council''. ''My focus is representing the best interests of the community, not getting involved in political games,'' he said. ''It's a shame that, at times, the council meeting descended into a domain for politi- cal manoeuvring, rather than its intended purpose as a forum for us to make decisions for the benefit of the community.'' Liberal Cr Bill Carney told the Weekly he supported the motion because he ''had past dealings with Cr Kwon and wasn't sure I could have confidence with him as mayor''. Cr Lim withdrew a no confi- dence motion in the deputy mayor.
