Cr. Margaret Esakoff

Cr. Margaret Esakoff, Class of 1970

Current Mayor of Glen Eira (fourth time as Mayor, over 17 years on Council)

What are you career highlights? – Pre Council working with Bert Newton when he was doing Channel 9 and 3UZ programmes and having the opportunity to meet so many local and international celebrities. Post Council would have been becoming Mayor for the first time, with my mother there to see it happen, and of course the honour that representing the City I grew up in and live in has given me.

What are your future plans? To give back to the community in whatever ways I can.

What are your memories of your time at Kilvington?

I have many fond memories from my years at Kilvington. The good values it instils in students (then and now), the camaraderie of students and support they gave one another, my geography teacher, Mrs Phillips-Rees who gave me a new found interest in the subject, along with the many great teachers who had the ability to guide us all in the right direction.
