Indigo Shire Council has tonight elected Cr Jenny O’Connor as its new Mayor for the next 12 months and Cr Sophie Price as Deputy Mayor.

Outgoing Mayor, Cr Bernard Gaffney declined to accept a nomination to enter a second term in the top job.

In accepting her nomination, Cr O’Connor described the opportunity to be Mayor, a position she held for two terms from 2016 to 2018, as a huge privilege.

She said her main priorities will be to continue to advocate to State and Federal Government on behalf of the people of Indigo and to continue to build partnerships and relationships with the local community.

“I will work to achieve the best outcome for the local community and take a solutions focused approach to resolving local issues”, she said.

Cr O’Connor welcomed the appointment of Cr Price to the role of Deputy Mayor, saying they will make a great team.
