Cr Troy will be seeking his third term as mayor after being in the position since 2004. In the 1990s, he also served five years as a councillor, two as deputy mayor.

“Following careful consideration and consultation I have decided to seek a further term on Council, I will be nominating for the position of Mayor and Councillor,” he told the Courier-Sun.

“I will head an experienced and community spirited team, with Cr David Scott placed number two on the ticket.”

“I still have plenty of enthusiasm for Local Government and believe I have more to contribute to our Shire community and would bring experience and continuity to the new Council,” Cr Troy said.

“I strongly adhere to the notion of ‘one region-different communities’ and if re-elected will continue to explore local and regional opportunities to improve efficiencies and strengthen our Local Government area.

“Change, both positive and negative, is occurring at a rapid pace, this change needs to be carefully planned and managed, while respectfully recognising the distinct and diverse character of our communities and their range of objectives and expectations.

“I am very conscious of the fact that many challenges remain for Local Government at a local, regional and State level and I am keen to continue the work of reform at all levels. With my appointment to the Shires Association Executive and continual active involvement in regional organisations I believe I am well placed to achieve positive outcomes,” Cr Troy concluded.
