Knife-edge vote in Ce­duna

Sunday Mail - - NEWS -

VOT­ING went down to the wire in Ce­duna where only five votes sep­a­rated new mayor Perry Will from his fel­low coun­cil­lor and sole com­peti­tor Ken May­nard.

Mr Perry won 525 votes, a whisker ahead of Mr May­nard on 520 votes. The re­sult was the clos­est con­test in the state with just over 1000 vot­ers head­ing to the polls in the re­gional cen­tre.

Mr Will re­places long-time mayor Al­lan Suter who spent 12 years in the job.
