Community Recognition Statement
Mr ANOULACK CHANTHIVONG (Macquarie Fields) (16:12): I pay tribute to my good friend, former council colleague on Campbelltown City Council, proud former serviceman in the Australian Army and long-term Labor Party stalwart, Wal Glynn. Wal was first elected to council in 2008 and was subsequently re‑elected for a second term in 2012. During his time on council, Wal has been a tireless advocate on behalf of Campbelltown and its residents. He was always championing the causes that were dear to him, particularly those related to Campbelltown's youth and veterans communities. During his time on council he was wonderfully supported by his wife of more than 60 years, Nel. Wal is a dear friend, a solid supporter and a respected colleague. I wish Wal all the very best for the future and congratulate him on his outstanding civic service. In particular, I trust the future holds many more opportunities for both Wal and Nel to travel and a bit more time for Wal to barrack for his beloved Collingwood Magpies.
