The NSW Electoral Commission finished counting for Lake Macquarie council yesterday.
We now have (for the first time) two Greens councillors on Lake Macquarie Council: Phillipa Parsons (East Ward) and Hannah Gissane (North Ward).
Unfortunately, Suzanne Pritchard (West Ward) missed out, however, she increased the Greens vote significantly to 13% putting it on a par with the rest of Lake Macquarie.
The election of Greens to Lake Macquarie Council is a historic moment for local Greens.
Congratulations to Phillipa and Hannah, and to all those Greens who assisted with the Lake Macquarie campaign.
