Sue Moore Declared Mayor of Singleton
Sue Moore is elected as Mayor of Singleton with official results from the NSW Electoral Commissioned announced this afternoon.
Mayor Moore secured 5856 votes of the potential 17,080 votes, ahead of Danny Thompson on 4,721. Mayor Moore has been on Singleton Council since 1999 and has held this position for nine years.
Tony Jarrett and fellow mayoral contestant Belinda Charlton, although not officially declared, are set to have a seat in the elected council chambers.
Mayor Moore is most proud of her work advocating for changes to the Resources for Regions criteria that now includes community infrastructure programs.
She is most appreciative of the collaboration of the last council, the capacity it has had to work together to ensure positive outcomes for the Singleton community through a time that has experienced damaging bushfires, floods, ongoing drought and the continuing challenges of covid lockdowns.
She knows the Singleton community is resilient and looks forward to working with a new group of councillors and only hopes the success of the past continues to the future.
She sincerely thanks the candidates, past and present, and will continue to push on for a positive future.
