Maroubra resident Dylan Parker is now at the helm of Randwick City, taking over from Danny Said. The new leader plans to rejuvenate the area and revive the city’s nightlife as he works to reopen establishments and community groups safely. 

Mr Parker, who started his career as a public servant in 2017, worked in the government for nearly a decade. He assisted public housing tenants and was training to become an educator before public service became his calling. 

The son of a nurse and a small business owner in Maroubra, Mr Parker is also a volunteer lifesaver. He promised to carry on the legacy of Mr Said, who served as Randwick’s mayor for two years.

Mr Parker’s key objectives as the new mayor include enriching the cultural life of the community and preserving the green spaces with various park and walking tracks improvements.

“Randwick has remained resilient throughout a really tough period. Over the next term I look forward to ensuring our sporting groups, cafes, restaurants and community groups can reopen safely,” Mr Dylan Parker said.

“I want to rejuvenate our area and bring energy to our nightlife. I will also work to protect our green spaces and demand real, affordable housing for our area.”

Meanwhile, Mr Said remarked that “the Council is in safe hands” with Mr Parker at the helm.

Along with the new leadership, Lindsay Shurey was named the Deputy Mayor of Randwick. She started public service in 2012 and led the city in 2017.
