IT­WAS a close race for Divi­sion 2 can­di­dates last Satur­day as the re­gion stepped out to vote for a new divi­sion leader.

The count­ing started at 6pm on Satur­day night and from the start the two front run­ners were Julie Green and Bill Trevor.

Tak­ing an early lead, Mr Trevor is set to be the next coun­cil­lor for Divi­sion 2.

Mrs Green took to so­cial me­dia late Satur­day night con­grat­u­lat­ing Mr Trevor on his win in Divi­sion 2.

“Bill has a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge of lo­cal govern­ment and I am sure he will do a great job,” Mrs Green said.

“I have en­joyed this jour­ney and I am very proud of the re­sults and I am very grate­ful for the sup­port of so many peo­ple in our divi­sion.”

Mrs Green held her own, stand­ing up against four oth­ers in the divi­sion, and didn’t play into nasty on­line rants.

Mr Trevor was qui­etly con­fi­dent on Satur­day af­ter­noon when he was tracked down at the Woodgate polling booth.

“I want to be the voice of the divi­sion and I am con­fi­dent I can do a great job for the com­mu­nity, if elected,” Mr Trevor said.

Can­di­dates around the re­gion braved the hot sun to drum up sup­port in a last ef­fort to gain more votes.

Mrs Green braved the heat at Ap­ple Tree Creek where she cast her vote.

When asked if she voted for her­self, she jok­ingly re­ferred to her com­ments made the night of the Childers fo­rum, say­ing “Bill al­most got my vote”.

The count­ing con­tin­ues and the race will be over when the last vote is counted.
