Two new councillors for Toodyay

Former shire deputy president aims for Central Ward seat

By Michael Sinclair-Jones

TOODYAY will get two new councillors this month as a result of ‘extraordinary’ elections in the shire’s Central and West Wards.

Among the candidates is former deputy shire president John Prater, who served as an East Ward councillor from 2011 to 2013 before deciding last month to nominate again, this time in Central Ward.

Hoddys Well lawyer and anti-landfill campaigner Bill Manning, and Butterly Cottages President and Toodyay Men’s Shed Chair Jeff Roberts also nominated to contest the Central Ward vacancy.
