THE CIVIC ELECTION in October is still a few months away, but already there are signs the council table could look substantially different.
Some are proven leaders, some will be one issue fluff, and all will be convinced they are the best there’s ever been.

We are losing a strong leader in Mayor Ken Christian. He is the latest in a list of really good Mayors.
We will lose one, or both, of Arjun Singh and Dieter Dudy, both of whom bring a veteran presence to Council.
