Moving forward together

John Carter QSO

15 October 2019

Thank you to everyone who was involved in my campaign; it's a great honour and privilege to represent this District, and I'm looking forward to the next three years working for and with the Community.

It's been an interesting campaign and I've taken on board the messages we received. Thank you all. Cheers, John.

John and Leoni

Leadership by community and for community

I have always maintained that local government is successful when it is lead by the community - not the other way 'round. It is for the communities of the Far North to tell its Council what it wants, and the Council's job to facilitate the outcom. My aim as Mayor has always been to help communities in developing their plans for the future and then doing my utmost to bring that vision into reality.

Elections were conducted, by postal vote, on Saturday 12 October 2019.


Preliminary election results for Mayor

These include votes cast at Council offices on Election Day up to 12 noon.
