As local residents may be aware, one consequence of my election as Willoughby Mayor is that Sailors Bay residents (i.e. those people registered on the electoral roll in Northbridge, Castlecrag and Willoughby east of Sydney St), will be asked to vote for an additional Councillor on June 14th. This is a legislative requirement, but it should also be considered an opportunity to introduce additional representation to our Council, from within the Ward.
Pleasingly, the NSW Electoral Commission has agreed to bring forward the intended date of the election by one week so that it does not coincide with school holidays, and it is hoped that pre-poll will be located at a more accessible venue inside the Ward.
