Media response - Apology statement

Published on 19 July 2019

ENQUIRY – Daily Mail Australia

I was hoping to get a copy of councillor Sandra Brown’s apology regarding offensive posts she uploaded to her personal Facebook account.

I was also interested in what Mayor Erin Thompson’s response was to the issue as it stands. If she could provide a short statement that would be appreciated.

RESPONSE

Comments attributed to Mayor Erin Thompson

The sentiments expressed in the posts on Cr Brown’s personal Facebook page in March 2019 flew in the face of what the City of Onkaparinga stands for and I made this very clear in my statements at the time.

As a council we are moving forward, by maintaining our strong commitment to multi-cultural programs and services, and strong relationships with cultural organisations representing all nations, religious backgrounds, beliefs and cultures.
