Congratulations to Roxanne McMurray, Professor Simon Chapman, Peggy Lane and Daniel Lahood; all of whom have been named as this year's Inner West Council Citizens of the Year.
Roxanne McMurray, 2020 Citizen of Year, is a respected domestic violence campaigner and Manager at Leichhardt Women's Community Health Centre. She is a passionate advocate for funding domestic violence services and established SOS Women's Services, a women's advocacy and action group campaigning against the closure of women's and girls' refuges in the city.
Professor Simon Chapman is this year's joint Inner West Senior Citizen of the Year, sharing the award with Peggy Lane, who I spoke about yesterday in the House.
Professor Chapman is awarded for his dedication to music and the arts, having established the St.Anmore music festival, honouring the renowned conductor Richard Gill, a long time Stanmore resident.
Daniel Lahood, 2020 Young Citizen of the Year, is a passionate advocate for social justice.
Most recently, Daniel has volunteered with Neighbour Aid, grocery shopping for elderly residents self-isolating during this pandemic.
Congratulations to this year's recipients, you are all inspirational inner westies.
