It’s been a long and arduous day for Murweh Shire Council employees and Candidates, who have all been up since the early hours of this morning preparing for the day ahead.
And now it’s all over.
Polling booths are officially closed in Charleville, Augathella and Morven and 2,926 locals had their hand in deciding who sits on our local council for the next four years.
Incumbent Mayor Denis Cook says he’s feeling confident.
“I’m really pumped up and raring to go.
“We’ve had a lot of people vote, and I’m really look forward to it.
“I’m waiting on the result which will happen sometime tonight,” he says.
So who will it be? Just four Councillors will come out of the 16 in the run and one Mayor out of the three.
Mayoral Candidate Annie Liston says it’s been a positive day.
“I’m feeling very good, really good about today.
“I felt very good about putting my vote in,” she says.
It’s been an eventful journey for all of our candidates and we’re sure they’ve learnt a lot along the way.
From speaking at public election forums, to handing out flyers, it’s safe to say voters had a tough decision to make.
Mayoral Candidate John Jones says he’s been apart of this Shire for years and he’s confident that voting will go his way.
“I’m feeling quite confident, I’ve been a man of the Shire, I’ve done the polling booths at Morven and Augathella this morning to show my face there,” he says.
