For three decades, in one form or another, James Treloar was one of Tamworth’s democratically elected leaders – whether it be councillor, deputy mayor or mayor. During that time he’s watched the city and its neighbouring villages grow in leaps and bounds, and has been at the helm of some of the city’s biggest changes. The Leader spoke with Mr Treloar in 2017, when he was honoured with an OAM.
