For more than 34 years, Councillor Marion Browne has advocated for and contributed to her community and now her work has been publicly recognised with a NSW Ministers’ Award for Women in Local Government.


After a delay to the awards due to the COVID-19, the winners of the 2021 Award were announced earlier this week, with Cr Browne awarded the Elected Representative Award for Regional/Rural Areas.


Minister for Local Government The Hon. Wendy Tuckerman MP visited Broken Hill on Tuesday to present Cr. Brown with her award, with Mayor Tom Kennedy, Councillor Darriea Turley and General Manager Jay Nankivell in attendance to celebrate and acknowledge her outstanding achievements.


The Ministers' Women in Local Government Awards commemorate and celebrate the significant contribution women make to the Local Government sector. The Awards were established in 2008 to recognise the outstanding efforts of women at the grassroots level of government in metropolitan and regional/rural councils.


Council congratulates Cr Browne on her achievement and thanks her for her commitment to Broken Hill and the region.


The 2022 Ministers’ Women in Local Government Awards are now open until 19 October 2022, please visit the Office of Local Government website for more information and to nominate.
