Craddock resigns, West Ward postal ballot set for May 25

HUNDREDS of Toodyay voters will go back to the polls on May 25 after the surprise resignation of veteran West Ward shire councillor Sally Craddock last month.

The Toodyay Shire Council voted 7-0 for the WA Electoral Commission to run a postal ballot in the shire’s biggest electorate, which includes Morangup, Julimar, parts of Hoddys Well and Moondyne.

West Ward’s 1047 electors who were registered to vote in last October’s shire elections are represented by three councillors.

West Ward Cr Paula Greenway was re-elected last year for a further four years, while Cr Rob Welburn and former Cr Craddock were both elected in 2015.
