Lathey leads deputy race

MARTYN Evans has been returned for a second term as mayor of the Derwent Valley Council and Barry Lathey is the frontrunner in the deputy mayoral contest.

In the two horse race for mayor, incumbent Martyn Evans was first across the line with 2554 votes. Former mayor Tony Nicholson, who lost office two years ago, received 1291 votes.

At the close of counting tonight there was no clear winner among the three candidates for deputy mayor,  although Cr Barry Lathey is well in front with nearly 40% of the vote. It would appear that Cr Bromfield will be excluded from the count tomorrow (Wednesday), with her preferences to be distributed between Cr Lathey and Wayne Shoobridge to determine the winner.
