"The thing I like most about the Local Councils Association is its willingness to listen, learn and grow. The entire team is fantastic, smart, humble, hardworking and always willing to help. During the past years, the organisation worked hard to keep in touch with Regional and Local Councils with the use of a large variety of communication methods."
"The Local Council association serves as a catalyst with Government ministries and entities to help facilitate council's work, to manage conflict and to register progress."

"My priorities, as well as those of my fellow councillors, is to continue to preserve our cultural heritage, to have more modern, safe open spaces for our families, to further encourage the use of alternative means of transport such as walking and cycling, as well as to continue greening the environment we live in by planting more trees.
I feel that the biggest challenges I meet in my role as Mayor are the lack of parking spaces due to constant development, as well as the Council's lack of resources when it comes to tackling abuses related to littering.
I look to the future so that, with the help of the Local Councils' Association, Central Government as well as that of the concerned entities, we will be able to overcome these challenges."
"I was elected as a councillor, and I gave and actualised many ideas. It was therefore with great satisfaction that I was elected Vice Mayor in my second election, and that in these last three years I have occupied the role of Mayor.
A Mayor must have a vision for a sustainable environment so that they can offer residents a better quality of life."
"The primary reason I decided to run for the election of the Local Council was because I genuinely felt the need to give my service to the community of Għargħur so that the quality of life of residents would improve. The fact that this town where I lived my youth and which I returned to around ten years ago has always been in my heart made the decision much easier and natural for me to make.
Despite the challenges, it is a great honour for me to continue to serve my hometown and to do whatever is possible to positively improve our quality of life."
"One of the biggest challenges remains the granting of permits for the development of buildings.
This leads to another challenge I face every day, which regards waste.
Amongst many other priorities, the major ones that we are working on and that I would like to see being completed include the regeneration of the promenade, the continuation of the drainage project in the seafront, the continuation of works on the primary school and the reduction of traffic so that we can enjoy much better air quality."
"I think a woman makes a difference to the decisions taken and in the way she thinks. I work as a nurse and midwife, so I have always helped many people and taken care of others, and I wanted to take care of my hometown in the same way. It is my nature to always listen to others, and therefore I try to listen patiently and act on the requests of the residents as much as possible, as long as they are not of detriment to any third parties. Being a Mayor also brings its own satisfaction. "
