Michael Regan was last night elected as the first Mayor of Northern Beaches Council, with Candy Bingham elected as Deputy Mayor.
Mayor Regan will serve a two year term and Deputy Mayor Bingham a one year term.
Mayor Regan said it was humbling but also exciting to be elected as the first Mayor of the newly merged Council.
“I am aware of the enormity of the task ahead for our new Council. But we have an amazing group of Councillors to lead the community forward.
Council Chief Executive Mark Ferguson said he was looking forward to working with the new Council, Mayor and Deputy Mayor.
“This is an exciting time for the Northern Beaches and it is a privilege to lead Council’s dedicated staff as we work to implement the policies of the new Council across the broad array of Council services.”
