Douglas Shire Council is delighted to announce that Cr Lisa Scomazzon is the Shire’s new Mayor.

The result was officially confirmed by the Electoral Commission yesterday; Cr Scomazzon receiving 48.38 per cent of the vote.

Cr Scomazzon has held the position of Deputy Mayor over the past four years.

She is a local business owner and has previously worked for the State Government for 26 years.

Mayor Scomazzon said she was both excited and humbled by the appointment.

“Our community is still recovering from Cyclone Jasper and the flooding event that followed in December. I’m looking forward to working with the CEO and Council staff to continue this recovery process, ensuring our water network is more resilient and our roads are restored as soon as is possible,” Cr Scomazzon said.

“I consider it an honour and a privilege to lead the Shire and I am committed to representing the needs of the community to the best of my ability.”

Douglas Shire Council CEO Rachel Brophy said Council was looking forward to a new era under Cr Scomazzon’s leadership.

“Our newly-elected Mayor displayed a passion for the Shire, for transparency and accountability during Council’s last term and I’m confident she’ll lead with the same enthusiasm moving forward,” Ms Brophy said.

The Electoral Commission is yet to declare the Shire’s four other Councillors.

The formal Declaration of Office is tentatively scheduled for April 9.
