A ‘good mix’ to make up council

  • Continued from: P1

Mr King went into the election campaigning for a caravan park beside the Murray River and houseboats on Lake Hume and said they would be his priorities in office.

“It’s probably a little ironic that it’s flooded at the moment,” he said.

Cr Docksey was at the Albury electoral office at 10.03am Saturday when he finally found out he had been elected.

“One or nine, you’re still on the council,” he said.

“My aim was always to get Alice Glachan elected, she does a lot for the community.”

The returning councillor, and Albury RSL president, said he wanted to retain his position as traffic committee chairman and continue developing the Albury war memorial.

“We’ve got a really good mix, that’s what the community voted for,” Cr Docksey said.

The new set of Albury councillors will meet for the first time on Thursday evening, before a workshop on Friday.

The first task will be electing a mayor and deputy mayor, who  Cr Docksey said should be someone willing to work for the community, not themselves.
