The John Legoe Award

Launched in 2006, and named after the late Kingston Mayor and former LGA President, the John Legoe Award was set up to recognise Elected Members who demonstrate a commitment to personal development, as well a passion for serving their councils and communities over an extended period of time.

Over the past decade this award has recognised the contributions made by many hard working and passionate Elected Members.

However, in recognition of the declining number of entries, and changing  landscape of local government in SA, we have - in consultation with John’s wife Gayle - decided that the 2015/16 John Legoe Award will be the last.

If you have any questions please contact Rebecca Wake on (08) 8224 2047 or rebecca.wake@lga.sa.gov.au.
