Today’s news is that Ray Lewis is a confirmed nomination and is backed by three Councillors who want him to sit in the big chair. They see him as a face that can represent a fresh start for the shire. The final result may come down to the vote of a single undecided Councillor on the 29th if more than Cr Lewis actually nominates.
Thursday’s special meeting to elect Mayor and Deputy Mayor will be an interesting one with a group of ratepayers keen to make it clear to the new Council that they do not support Peter Shinton in any position. If nothing else, there is a great deal more interest by ratepayers in who and what this council is up to.
