Christine Walker to fill South Ward Councillor vacancy

Last updated on 14 November 2023

The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) has declared Christine Walker as the successful candidate to fill an extraordinary South Ward Councillor vacancy, following a countback held online yesterday.

The VEC-led countback was held to fill the vacancy left by the recent resignation of Anne Moore, with all formal South Ward votes from the 2020 Macedon Ranges Shire Council Election redistributed to candidates who were unsuccessful in 2020, but still eligible to be elected.

On the vacancy being filled, CEO Bernie O’Sullivan said: “I warmly welcome Ms Walker to Council, and look forward to working closely with her to deliver positive outcomes for the South Ward and the Macedon Ranges community.”

Mayor Annette Death said: “On behalf of all Councillors, I’d also like to welcome Ms Walker to Council and I know we’ll all endeavour to support her as she transitions to the Councillor role.”

Ms Walker will commence her role as Councillor after being officially sworn in tomorrow (15 November).
