Quiet exit for Scaffidi

LISA SCAFFIDI’S three-term run as lord mayor of Perth quietly ended on October 19.

With the council currently suspended there was no election, but Ms Scaffidi had officially held the lord mayor’s title until Saturday.

Serving a total of 20 years on Perth council, Ms Scaffidi’s 12 years in the top job is second-longest after predecessor Peter Nattrass, who wore the chains from 1995 to 2007. A change in election dates during his reign gave him a couple of extra months over Ms Scaffidi.

Saturday was also the final date for councillors Jim Adamos, Jemma Green and Lily Chen.

Steve Hasluck, James Limnios, Lexi Barton and Reece Harley retain their titles as councillors until 2021 unless the inquiry recommends they be dismissed, and the local government minister agrees.

Ms Scaffidi has indicated she won’t be standing for public office again.
