 Division 2 Councillor Jeff McConnell has been appointed as the Scenic Rim Regional Council Deputy Mayor for the next twelve months. 

McConnell was elected to the SRRC in 2020, after a long career in the Australian Army.

He says he’s looking forward to serving the community in a new role.

“I would like to congratulate and thank Councillor Enright for the term he served as Deputy Mayor.” 


“I look forward to the opportunities this role will present over the next twelve months while continuing to work alongside the Mayor and fellow Councillors.” 

McConnell is a resident of Tamborine Village, where he lives with his wife and two daughters.

Since 2016, the position of Deputy Mayor has been rotated annually amongst Elected Members through resolution, 

Council also endorsed nominated Councillor representation on various internal and external committees and forums, including a number of advisory groups, for the period of May 2022 to May 2023, with a review to continue to be held annually. 

Council will now officially advise the various organisations of the respective appointed Councillor representatives. 

Councillor representation on committees and forums helps ensure that Council remains connected with the local community while advocating for the needs of our region on a range of matters affecting South East Queensland and Queensland.
