Newly-elected Cen­tral Otago Dis­trict Mayor Tim Cado­gan wants to stick with the sta­tus quo and keep Neil Gille­spie on as deputy mayor.

Cado­gan will be rec­om­mend­ing to coun­cil­lors the ap­point­ment of coun­cil­lor Neil Gille­spie to the role of deputy mayor at its next meet­ing later this month.

"He is a man I can re­late to and I am sure we will work well to­gether. I dis­cussed the ap­point­ment last week when I met in­di­vid­u­ally with all my Coun­cil­lors and my rec­om­men­da­tion has their univer­sal back­ing."

The of­fi­cial swear­ing in of the new coun­cil and ap­point­ment of com­mit­tee chairs and deputies will take place at the first coun­cil meet­ing for the new term on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 26 from 10.30am. Lotto on Satur­day.
