A message from the Mayor

A message from Hume Mayor Geoff Porter:

I was disappointed by the comments made on Cr Medcraft’s personal social media.

I spoke to Cr Medcraft immediately after I was made aware of the comments to express my disappointment. In a frank conversation, he took responsibility for the comments and gave an immediate unreserved apology.

I have made it clear that comments of this nature are not the standard that we accept here at Hume City Council, where we pride ourselves on celebrating diversity and being inclusive.

An investigation into the incident has been completed as a matter of priority and as a result, Cr Medcraft will be removed as the portfolio spokesperson for Indigenous Support and he will be suspended for two meetings. Cr Medcraft has also informed me that he will undertake cultural diversity training and issue an apology to the community.
