Mr Costa - Message of Condolences


The Mayor, Councillors of the Tiwi Islands Regional Council and
Communities  are saddened by the sudden passing of Mr Costa, the Member
for Arafura and a proud Manupi family member  of the Tiwi people.

Mr Costa was the first CEO of the Tiwi Islands Local Government
and also held senior positions in other forms of Tiwi Local Government that
were created over the years.

A passionate man with strong cultural beliefs, a committed
family man and an advocate for the Tiwi People and communities over many years
will be missed.

On behalf of the Tiwi Communities, family and all that were
honoured to know him, the Council thanks Mr Costa for his support for the Tiwi
Communities and extends it’s sincere and deepest condolences to his wife
Ebony, his children and his grandchildren.

Thank you and may you RIP.
