Today the Mayor of the City of Unley, Mr Lachlan Clyne, faced court for the final time and emerged the victor.
Defending himself against charges relating to the last Council election, Mayor Clyne presented to court today to restore his reputation and protect his integrity. Deputy Chief Magistrate Cannon delivered a strong judgment in Mayor Clyne’s favour, finding that he had no case to answer.
“Whilst I have maintained my dedication and focus on my role as Mayor of the City” said Mayor Clyne today after the adjournment, “I feel a profound sense of relief that I can now operate freely and with full confidence.”
The Mayor was represented in court today by Michael Abbott, QC, and was accompanied by his family. “I have been very humbled by the support I have received from friends, family and the community” he said.
The Mayor will be attending Channel 7’s Young Achiever Awards tonight and participating in the MS Mud Run on Sunday.
