MR PALLAS (Werribee—Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Industrial Relations, Minister for the Coordination of Treasury and Finance: COVID-19) (10:13):

I rise today to acknowledge to the house a highly respected councillor for Wyndham City Council, Kim McAliney.

She has been a champion for the Wyndham community. She has served on the Wyndham council for 11 years and during that time has been mayor for two terms and deputy mayor for another two terms.

Kim has a passion for fairness and genuine compassion for the needs of local residents.

She has held the portfolio for safer communities, and her strong advocacy has established effective working relationships with social justice stakeholders across Wyndham.

While raising a family of her own, Kim has been a leader and an inspiration. She encourages young women to take the opportunity and make a difference through service to others.

Kim continues to serve on many boards and foundations and as a bail justice is often called out to assist when most of us are asleep.

I wish Kim all the best for her future, and I am sure she looks forward to spending more time with her family that now includes her beautiful grandson, Jenson.
