Search is on again for Clarence Electorate ‘Woman of the Year’

Clarence MP Chris Gulaptis is once again calling on local residents to help find the Clarence electorate’s 2016 Woman of the Year.
The Clarence electorate includes the Clarence and Richmond Valley local government areas.
Mr Gulaptis said the Women of the Year awards were an opportunity to recognise women in our community for their contribution and significant achievements.
“There are so many women in our local communities whose dedicated work and interest in the community goes unnoticed.
“I would particularly be pleased to honour someone that has not been formally recognised before,” Mr Gulaptis said.
Previous recipients of the Woman of the Year award have been tireless Richmond Valley community worker, Robyn Spruce and Aboriginal elder, Aunty Muriel Burns, who has been a pillar of the Clarence Valley’s Yaegl community for many years.
People wishing to nominate someone as the Clarence Woman of the Year should submit details to Mr Gulaptis’s office by Friday, 18 December. For further information, call his office on 6643 1244.
