Cr Dominic King was popularly elected as Mayor in the September 2016 Local Government Elections.

Cr King is also a passionate advocate for the environment and firmly believes Local Government is best placed to develop strategic plans and solutions to tackle the place based challenges of a changing climate.  He also is a strong supporter of Local Governments ability (if correctly funded) to best deal with issues such as housing affordability, social justice and community inclusion.

Cr King served as a Councillor from 2012-2016 where he gained valuable insight into the workings, challenges and issues facing residents and the Council as an organisation. The role has enabled him to experience first-hand how local government functions and operates on a legislative and economic basis.

A keen sportsman, Cr. King played 201 games for Parramatta Rugby Union Club and is currently a football coach with a local soccer club.
