Kirsten Molloy has been elected as regional NRMA representative

The votes have been cast and Kirsten Molloy has just been announced as one of the newly elected members to the NRMA board.

“I am incredibly humbled by the support of so many people from the Central Coast, Hunter and Mid North Coast regions. As I prepare to take a place on the Board of NRMA, I look forward to working as part of this incredible organisation to help keep people of all ages safe on our roads, while developing new and accessible ways for our community to connect, live and move.”

There are currently 340,000 members of NRMA that currently live in a region that includes the Hunter, Port Stephens and the Central Coast. Kirsten will be the first Hunter resident to sit on the NRMA board since Kyle Loades retired as Director and President in December 2017 after his 10 year tenure. Kyle has supported Kirsten during this process and endorsed her nomination.

“As a working mum, I believe that we must not only plan our future but move quickly to develop new ways for our community to connect and move. Importantly this is about keeping people of all ages safer on our roads and advocating for fairer petrol costs and keeping transport costs affordable.  It’s also about attracting the right funding for better road and transport solutions including light rail extensions as well as efficient public and private transport networks.

“You might also have heard that I recently announced that I would not be renewing my contract as CEO of Hunter Valley Coal Chain Coordinator (HVCCC) so that I can pursue this and other opportunities. I am incredibly grateful and honoured to have held this position and I believe that this experience together with other roles in the community and my passion for our region places me well to take on this role should I be fortunate enough to be elected.”
