Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to pay tribute Claude Ullin, who passed away recently. Claude served as a councillor in the City of Malvern and the City of Stonnington for 25 years. He was mayor of Stonnington and Malvern five times, the last being in 2016.

Claude conducted himself as mayor and councillor in what I would call an old-fashioned manner. My fellow Greens councillor Erin Davie and I always appreciated Claude for being collegiate and being prepared to advise and assist but also for being respectfully forthright when he held differing views, which despite coming from different ends of the political spectrum occurred less than one would imagine. Too often our political differences gives way to pettiness and personal hostility, but that certainly was not Claude's approach. We could do with more people taking Claude's approach to public life. Claude was passionate about the arts and was a strong advocate for our community, including on clearways and the need to connect South Yarra station to Melbourne Metro.

Vale, Claude Ullin. Thank you for your service to our community. Our thoughts are with you and your family.
