Councillor Miller steps down from council

Councillor Pablo Miller has resigned from Council after seven years of dedicated service to the community. 

Elected in 2017, Cr Miller has been a constant fixture at council meetings, only missing one during his tenure and helped initiate the Youth Advisory Group aimed at empowering young voices and fostering their engagement in local governance. 

Earlier this year, Cr Miller resigned from his role at Triple M, and with the approval of the Mayor he attended Council meetings remotely while he travelled to the East Coast to see family. 

City of Karratha CEO Virginia Miltrup said Cr Miller has resigned from his position as a councillor effective July 5. 

“Since travelling to visit family, Cr Miller attended council meetings remotely and planned to attend the August Council meeting in person,” Ms Miltrup said. 

“Cr Miller remains an elector of the City and is compliant with the Local Government Act, however he has notified Cr Scott and myself of his decision to step down from Council.” 

City of Karratha Mayor Daniel Scott said Cr Miller had been a dedicated councillor over the last seven years. 

“I want to express my sincere gratitude to Pablo for his hard work on Council and his efforts to positively impact our city and its residents,” Cr Scott said. 

“We have achieved significant milestones and improvements during his time as a councillor and it has been a pleasure working with him.” 

A report will presented to Council in July to discuss calling a by-election for the vacant seat.
