LIAM GOBBERT has been voted in as depty lord mayor of the City of Perth.
At Tuesday night’s council meeting Cr Gobbert secured five of the nine votes to take over the position from Cr Di Bain, who had completed her prescribed 12 months.
Cr Gobbert had been nominted by Cr Rebecca Gordon, a manager at miner Fortesque Metals Group.
Lord mayor Basil Zempilas noted that Cr Gobbert had previously been the deputy mayor at the City of Joondalup; in fact at 24-years-old he was the city’s youngest deputy.
“I think that takes you straight to the local government hall of fame, councillor, so my congratulations and well done,” Mr Zempilas said.
