Mary Couros appointed Deputy Lord Mayor of Adelaide

·

Mary Couros announced via social media on Friday that she is to be appointed the next Deputy Lord Mayor of Adelaide, succeeding Alexander Hyde.

As of December 1, Mary Couros will join Lord Mayor of Adelaide Sandy Verschoor in working to make Adelaide a more “sustainable city” that is recognised “worldwide”.

“This is a very exciting opportunity and I am humbled that all councillors voted to elect me as Deputy Lord Mayor for 2021. It is an honour to serve as Deputy Lord Mayor to the most diverse council in the City of Adelaide’s history,” Ms Couros said to Glam Adelaide.

“In 2020 we had the youngest Deputy Lord Mayor Councillor Hyde and I am looking forward to working with Lord Mayor Sandy Verschoor through our recovery of the pandemic.”

The incoming Deputy Lord Mayor also expressed her pleasure in having two women leading the chamber for the first time since 1999.

“As a child of immigrants that grew up in the city supporting my parents business this sends a clear message to everyone out there that not matter of your gender, age or your upbringing if you have a passion and are prepared to work hard anything is possible,” Ms Couros added.

The North Ward Councillor was elected to the City of Adelaide in 2018. Prior to becoming a Councillor, Ms Couros held over 25 years of experience in the Real Estate industry.

City of Adelaide Councillor Arman Abrahimzadeh congratulated Ms Couros on her appointment, stating, “female leadership continues to thrive at the City of Adelaide.”

“As Deputy Lord Mayor I want to support the City of Adelaide together with the Lord Mayor through this crisis so we can build a foundation for bigger and better growth for our capital city,” Ms Couros concludes.
