Leader re­mains

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Matt Han­nan is Ber­ri­gan Shire Mayor for the next two years af­ter he was re-elected un­op­posed at the monthly coun­cil meet­ing last week.

Fel­low Fin­ley-based coun­cil­lor Daryll Mor­ris was also re-elected un­op­posed as deputy mayor.

Cr Han­nan said it meant it was ‘‘busi­ness as usual’’ for the Ber­ri­gan Shire.

‘‘I thank my fel­low coun­cil­lors for show­ing sup­port for me and look for­ward to serv­ing for the next two years,’’ he said.

‘‘We’re a pro­gres­sive shire, there’s lots of good things hap­pen­ing through­out it. We’re bring­ing events and state events to our area, we’re up­grad­ing our in­fra­struc­ture and pro­vid­ing recre­ation for res­i­dents.

‘‘I think the Ber­ri­gan Shire is in a good place at the mo­ment and if we con­tinue to work to­gether we can do re­ally good things. There’s no more im­por­tant time to come to­gether than now with these con­di­tions we can’t re­ally con­trol.

‘‘Daryll has been great sup­port to me and I’m sure he will con­tinue to be over the next two years, so I’m happy he de­cided to run for the po­si­tion.’’
