Bull back in Bayswater

DAN BULL is back as Bayswater mayor.

Bayswater has not yet embraced the popular election of mayors, with Mr Bull given the nod by his colleagues on Monday night after taking west ward unopposed at last Saturday’s council elections.

Cr Catherine Ehrhardt unsuccessfully put her hand up for the job, but had consolation for the loss with a thumping 70.84 per cent vote in the three-way race for south ward.

Cr Filomena Piffaretti was chosen as deputy over Cr Stephanie Gray.

In other results from Bayswater, north ward incumbent Michelle Sutherland got a huge 72.35 per cent of the vote against sole rival Jill Devaney.

Central ward had two seats free. Steven Ostaszewskyj campaigned hard and scored top spot with 31.83 per cent of the vote – success for his second time around.

The second seat was retained by Sally Palmer (29.85 per cent).

Cr Bull said after the mayoral vote: “I’m really excited for what the next two years are going to bring working with our progressive, united council for our residents and ratepayers.”
