Gympie Regional Council’s Mayor, Cr. Ron Dyne tendered his resignation at today’s Council meeting. Cr. Dyne’s resignation will be effective from 19 December 2014 and Cr. Tony Perrett will be Acting Mayor until a by-election is held within the next three months.
Cr. Dyne was the first elected mayor of the amalgamated Gympie Regional Council and has close to fifteen years in local government service.
In tendering his resignation, Cr. Dyne expressed his profound regret at not being able to continue in his role due to the effects of cancer and thanked his fellow councillors, Council staff, the community and his family for their support and well wishes during his illness.
Michelle and Heatley Gilmore from Rainbow Beach Cooloola Coast Community News want to thank Ron and and his wife Dulcie for their amazing support for the coast and our events, for Ron’s hard work and humility in his important role in the region, and am sure the whole community is thinking of them both and their family during this time.
