Mayor for a minute

IN a cheeky moment at last month’s Derwent Valley Council meeting, local government agitator Damian Bester advised the municipal body that he would not be able to attend the May meeting. “I know you will be disappointed to hear this,” Mr Bester said.

Later in the meeting, when Mayor Tony Nicholson called for any applications for leave, several councillors humorously responded “Just Councillor Bester,” but a lone councillor at the far end of the table added sotto voceMayor Bester”.

NOTE: Damian Bester has asked the NNNews to advise its readers that he will not be standing for mayor at this year’s council election.
