To the Seawinds Ward and MPS community, thank you all for your support and thoughts throughout my election campaign. It is very much appreciated and all going well I will be back on board after the elections, rolling up my sleeves and getting on with what I thoroughly enjoy doing – taking care of our Community.

So what happens with your votes now??

Over the weekend all votes will be counted. Saturday is when all the ballots will be taken out of their envelope, sorted and bundled – the results for the single Councillor wards should be in by the end of today all going well. For the multi-Councillor wards on the proportional voting system all votes will be keyed into the computer on Sunday. At 5.00pm Sunday the button will be pushed on the computer and the winning results will be revealed. The official declaration will be made at the Council Shire Offices Rosebud on Sunday at 8.30pm. All incoming and outgoing Councillors will be attending the official declaration and the public is certainly most welcome to attend.
