The votes of four wards were counted today in the City of Unley Council elections after a slow start, with the provisional results as follows:
Parkside Ward Michael Hudson and John Koumi
Unley Ward Michael Hewitson and Rufus Salaman
Goodwood Ward Bob Schnell and Luke Smolucha
Fullarton Ward Anthony Lapidge and Peter Hughes
In the four wards counted thus far all incumbents have been returned based on the provisional results. One new member, Luke Smolucha, will represent Goodwood Ward in the absence of retired Denise Tipper.
I offer congratulations and a welcome back to the incumbents and a big welcome to Luke.
Unley Park Ward will be counted tomorrow and I will report when the results are known.
I offer also condolences and a well done to those candidates who ran but didn’t get in. It take guts to stand for council and you deserve credit for putting your hand up.
