Newly elected Mayor of the City of Subiaco Penny Taylor has promised positivity, excitement, leadership and drive in her new role as leader of the city.
The mayoral announcement was made at the local government election count on Saturday night with the Shenton Park resident securing 33.17% of the votes.
In her acceptance speech, the Mayor-Elect thanked her partner and children, as well as friends and supporters of her campaign.
“It’s been wonderful to meet so many magnificent people across our suburbs as part of that campaigning” she said.
“It’s been a delight to see the Intelligent and caring nature that give our suburbs such great characteristics and such a lovely feel that we all know and love.”
Ms Taylor ran for the seat of Nedlands in the 2017 State Election and said this experience gave her an understanding of what people wanted to see in Subiaco.
Ms Taylor will take over from outgoing mayor Heather Henderson and will be sworn in at a Special Council meeting on Tuesday 24 October.
