In a historic step for the Langeberg Municipal Council, Councillor Pauline Hess was elected as its first female Speaker, this morning.

The position of Speaker became vacant last week when the former Speaker, Alderman Scalk van Eeden, was elected to the position of Executive Mayor.

Expressing her appreciation for the confidence and responsibility bestowed upon her, especially during Women’s Month, Speaker Hess promised to contribute meaningfully to the progress and success of the council and the administration.

“I have big shoes to fill and look forward to provide assistance to the Executive Mayor and work closely with ward committees and ward councillors to ensure that our work is done efficiently and effectively,” says Speaker Hess.
