City of Perth Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas said it’s been an exciting couple of days at the City, with new and returning Councillors sworn-in at a ceremony on Tuesday, followed by this evening’s election of the Deputy Lord Mayor.
“Congratulations to Deputy Lord Mayor Clyde Bevan. We have a big year ahead of us and I look forward to working closely with the Deputy Lord Mayor and all my colleagues on Council to deliver real progress for our City and its ratepayers, residents, and visitors alike. 

“As a Council, it’s our role and privilege to be a strong voice for the City and this is exactly what we intend to do – ensuring the City continues to shine bright as the City of Light.
“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank outgoing Deputy Lord Mayor, Liam Gobbert, for his huge efforts and contributions in the role. It’s been a pleasure working with side-by-side with Gobbert to deliver real progress, and we will continue to do so in your role on Council,” Mr Zempilas said.
