Dan Clancey to lead Latrobe City Council
Two councillors who joined Latrobe City Council in 2016 have been elected Mayor and Deputy Mayor for the final period of the current Council.
East ward councillor Dan Clancey attained the role over outgoing mayor Graham Middlemiss who was renominated. All councillors were present for last night's vote that went 5 to 4 in Cr Clancey's favour.
“It is a privilege to serve my community as a Councillor and I’m humbled to lead the Council for the next 12 months as Mayor,” Cr Clancey said last night.
“I wish to thank and acknowledge the tremendous work that Cr Middlemiss has done in his time as the Mayor. We have made significant progress on major Capital Works projects and a wide array of community events.”
“As well as over-seeing project delivery, Cr Middlemiss advocated strongly for our region through both State and National election campaigns, ensuring our community’s voice was heard on both state-wide and national platforms.”
