Community Recognition Statement

Mr ANOULACK CHANTHIVONG (Macquarie Fields ) ( 16:57 ): I acknowledge my former Campbelltown Council colleague Mr Rudi Kolkman for his contribution and public service to the people of Campbelltown for 21 years. It is a proud record of achievement, service and dedication to our community. Rudi is well known for his detailed knowledge of our planning system and his continual efforts to ensure that local input is at the forefront of urban planning decisions. Rudi has served as deputy mayor and has held a number of chairmanships. His love of the arts and cultural activities and his efforts to bring those events to the Campbelltown Arts Centre is well known and much appreciated. On the sporting front, Rudi has been a long-term patron and avid supporter of the Macarthur Rams Football Club. Rudi is a valued colleague and I know that the end of his elected civic duties does not mean the end of his service to the community. He will continue to contribute in so many ways. I wish Rudi, Diane and their family all the very best for the future.
