The Alexandria Residents’ Action Group (ARAG) and residents of Alexandria are saddened by the news of the unexpected passing of Robyn Kemmis, Deputy Lord Mayor and a great friend of ARAG.
ARAG is a relatively new residents’ group and in our short time since formation Robyn has offered quiet counsel and unqualified support for us and the issues that affect Alexandria. Robyn always was accessible, knowledgeable and professional in her interactions with ARAG.
We always have been impressed by Robyn’s performance on Council – her calm and considered presentation of issues and representation of constituents’ concerns.
We share this loss with all other City of Sydney resident groups and city residents, and send our sincere and heartfelt condolences to Robyn’s partner Lyn, her family, friends and colleagues. We will miss her greatly.
We have been advised the family will conduct a private service next week to farewell Robyn.
City of Sydney, working with Robyn’s partner Lynne and the family are arranging a Memorial Service, to be held at Sydney Town Hall some time in February. Details to be announced.
