Re-elected Singleton Deputy Mayor honoured to have ongoing support for third term

In the first meeting of Singleton Council following the 30 July By-election, Cr Tony Jarrett has been elected unopposed as deputy mayor for the remainder of the Council term.

He returns to the role for the third consecutive period.

Tonight’s meeting also included an Oath and Affirmation of Office by the nine elected councillors, and a presentation to former councillor Belinda Charlton in recognition of her contribution to the community since the December 2021 local government election.

Cr Jarrett said he was honoured to have the ongoing support of the Mayor and councillors.

“I’m very pleased to have been elected by my Council colleagues, and I look forward to continuing to work with the Mayor and the General Manager in this capacity,” he said.

“I deeply respect the importance of this role in assisting our Mayor and bringing our community together for the benefit of the people who live and work in Singleton.”

The next Council meeting will be held on 20 September 2022.
