Greens candidate Adam Guise has been elected to one of the final positions on the Lismore City Council, meaning that Lismore’s new mayor Isaac Smith will lead a majority of so-called progressives.
Mr Guise took out the final position on the council, while Chistian Democrats-aligned Giapiero Battista has taken out the tenth position. Former councillor Matt Scheibel missed out after preferences were distributed.
The new council is made up of Mayor Isaac Smith, of Country Labor, his team-mates Darlene Cook and Eddie Lloyd, Our Sustainable Future’s Elly Bird, Greens Vanessa Ekins and Adam Guise, National Party-aligned Independent Neil Marks and former Lismore council engineer Bill Moorhouse, Shooters and Fishers Party member Greg Bennett and his second Nancy Casson, and Gianpiero Battista.
