ALBURY deputy mayor Kevin Mack is poised to replace Alice Glachan as mayor tonight.
Cr Mack ruled himself out of a shot at the top job last Friday when contacted by The Border Mail.
But he said today discussions with his employer, Victoria Police, late on Friday had cleared the way for him to nominate for mayor.
Cr Mack has the numbers to become mayor and could be the sole nomination for the position.
His back-flip has ended any chance Cr Henk van de Ven had of replacing Cr Glachan.
He is likely to become deputy mayor.
The mayor and deputy mayor elections will be held at 6pm tonight.
