SOUTH Ward councillor Hugh Richardson was elected Subiaco Council deputy mayor at a meeting on October 27.
In his election speech to fellow councillors, Cr Richardson said fighting to keep the south ward part of Subiaco’s boundary during the City of Perth Bill process was of the “most importance”.
“I see this position as helping the mayor in her role, support from us working together and pursuing common goals,” he said.
“I would help you become a stronger team and a stronger council.”
City of Nedlands councillor Bill Hassell was the only nomination for deputy mayor, and was sworn in by Mayor Max Hipkins during a council meeting last month.
