With more than 26,400 votes counted, the WAEC confirmed North East Ward Councillor Linda Aitken received the highest number of votes to be elected as Mayor of the City of Wanneroo.

Cr Aitken was elected to Wanneroo Council in 2013 as a North Ward Councillor, and again in 2017 to represent the North East Ward and will now serve as Mayor until the City’s next regular Mayoral election to occur October 2023.

Cr Aitken will be sworn in as Mayor at a ceremony at the Civic Centre on Monday 5 September 2022.

Local government elections are ordinarily held every two years, with the Mayor and Councillors each elected to four-year terms, and half the council members elected every two years.
