Martin was directly elected as 78th Lord Mayor of Adelaide in 2014 with a mandate to improve the liveability, amenity, community well-being and economic performance of the City of Adelaide. In 2015, Martin was the Chair of the Council of Capital City Lord Mayors (CCCLM) where he led the national advocacy agenda for Australian capital cities prior to the 2016 Federal election.

In 2016, Council unanimously endorsed the City of Adelaide 2016-2020 Strategic Plan which consisted of four key themes of Smart, Green, Liveable & Creative, underpinned by 17 key objectives and 110 actions.

As Lord Mayor, Martin engaged the community, delivered infrastructure improvements, attracted considerable public and private investment, developed smart city, sustainability and technology policy and inspired considerable confidence about the future of the City of Adelaide.

Due to many successful public, private and community partnerships, the City of Adelaide is now a first choice destination for living, working, visiting, learning, entertaining, investing and doing business. Click here for the 2014 – 2018 Term of Office report
