S un N ew sp ap er s - P ag e 10 1 5 - C M Y K 10 NEWSSun Newspapers WEDNESDAY June 02 2010 49 dw 02 /1 0 49 dw 10 /1 0 By BRUCE CUTLER THE newest face to sit at the Litchfield council table has become a councillor without being elected. Lissa Herrmann was the only nominee to put her hand up to replace former Litchfield councillor Sandy Irlam, who resigned from her Central Ward role to relocate to Queensland. The 48-year-old Livingstone resident said she was almost lost for words when people congratulated her on becoming a councillor. "People have expressed congratulations and I'm not sure what to say. I had expected it to go to an election, so this has been a surprise to me," she said. Ms Herrmann has lived in the Top End for 34 years after originally growing up in Darwin, moving later to Palmerston and five years ago into the rural Litchfield area. She currently works as office manager for Bees Ck earthmoving contract business, but has an extensive administration and finance background in real estate and home loan industries among previous stints in the public service. The mother-of-three said council office had been something she had been considering for a while, "but it's not something you go into lightly". "My children are all grown-up now and I have the time and skills that I thought would be valuable to council." Ms Herrmann said managing development of the rural area would be of particular attention to her when she is sworn in for councillor duties. "It is inevitable that the population is continuing to move out (to Litchfield council area) and it's important that it's done in a considered fashion and to have the infrastructure put in place," she said. "Where possible it needs to be done to maintain the rural lifestyle that we all moved out here for." Ms Herrmann said she would like for residents to approach her with any issues of concern by contacting her on 0407 795 619. "You can't adequately represent residents unless you are aware of their opinions and views," she said.
