There is no need for a changing of the guard at Murrumbidgee Council, with both leadership roles going unchanged after a council election on Tuesday.
Ruth McRae has been re-elected as the mayor of Murrumbidgee Council for a second term, running unopposed for the position at the Murrumbidgee Council meeting in Jerilderie.
Councillor McRae was elected as mayor in 2017 and said she is excited to continue serving as mayor.
I look forward to continuing to serve all of the Murrumbidgee Council communities for another 12 months, Cr McRae said.
Its a privilege to be able to watch the roll-out of an extensive range of community building initiatives, made possible with Government funding.
We are at an exciting stage of our areas development and its excellent that we have been able to drive our future growth through opportunistic funding.
Deputy mayor Robert Black was also re-elected to his post with no opposition.
"I am looking forward to working with the Mayor and our fellow councillors to achieve community goals and expectations over the coming 12 months," Councillor Black said.
The term for both the mayor and deputy mayor position will run for 12 months until September 2020, when all councillors will face re-election.
