New president moves into position

New president moves into position Image

He’s a long-time resident and investor in Southbank and, having recently returned here to live, Tony Penna is ready to take on a new challenge as the newly-elected president of the Southbank Residents’ Group (SRG).

Mr Penna was given the opportunity to address the SRG members at the AGM in October saying he was thrilled to be entrusted in the position and excited about the future of the group.

“I have big shoes to fill, but these guys have said they’ll be available if I need to turn to them for advice, which I will,” Mr Penna said of the previous committee.

He also outlined his intention of bringing together the owners corporations throughout the area and using the SRG as a vehicle for their concerns.

“I intend on becoming very active with engaging with the community and in particular with the owners corporations. I intend to get to know them quite well, and attending their AGMs to hear what the issues are.”

“I also want to engage with the other groups, Docklands and Eastenders and the like, to really make sure the Southbank group is well known. From what I understand it’s really just continuing what the previous committee has already been doing.”

Vice president Dharmendra Poobalasingam, joins Mr Penna on the new-look executive committee, alongside secretary Andrea Johnston and treasurer Mike Vallis.
