Farewell Neal Garrett from Mosman Council
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Speaker, I rise today to acknowledge a long time staff member of Mosman Council, Neal Garrett, who retired on Australia Day after 42 years. In January 1979, Neal was appointed as a labourer for the Council, and then in 1988 he was appointed as Council's Caretaker, a role he held for over 32 years. Neal has been a much valued member of Mosman Council. He was responsible for the care, cleaning, maintenance, and security of Council's Mosman Junction buildings, and servicing and catering for Council's meetings, functions and events. Throughout his career, Neal has conducted himself with discretion, dedication, and loyalty. This professional conduct has been regularly acknowledged by staff, councillors, community members, and visitors. Neal will be sorely missed by our local community, and I would like to wish Neal all the best for his retirement.
