news, local news,

The electoral roll of the deputy mayor of the Federation, Shaun Whitechurch, recruited the youngest candidate in the history of the very young local administration. Sanger Street cafe operator and Corowa-Rutherglen footballer Jack Schilg, 22, will sit third on the ticket from Cr Whitechurch, which will again have current adviser Norm Wales at No.2. Schilg is far from being elected, but the deputy mayor has said he wants to test local government waters. “He comes from a farming family, plays soccer for Corowa-Rutherglen and runs his own business,” Cr Whitechurch said. “He can see the city is starting to move forward and once COVID is over it will be even better.” I also wanted to involve young people. “He will be making contributions from a younger generation, but is keen to learn from some of the senior advisers.” IN OTHER NEWS Mr Schilg, a regular senior player for the Roos, has said he is ready to challenge a board election. “Just seeing what happened recently that Shaun and the other advisers made me think,” he said. “I’ve lived here my whole life, so I thought I was going to go ahead and have a crack.” He operated the Doc Yarrum cafe for four years. Cr Whitechurch served as deputy mayor for the full four-year term of council with Cr Wales a member of Corowa Shire prior to the merger with Urana Shire. Paul Phibbs, who was on Cr Whitechurch’s ticket to the 2017 election, cannot run again as he now works for the council. Cr Whitechurch, a former Corowa Shire Citizen of the Year, said he had always planned to run for a second term on the board. “We have unfinished business that I want to see through,” he said. “The council is moving in the right direction with the amount of state and federal government grants we have received over the past four years.” We believe they have been distributed evenly across the county. “There are projects to start and finish, like the Ball Park trailer park.” He is the General Manager of Howlong Golf Resort. Cr David Longley has also confirmed that he will be a definitive starter in the election. But, former Corowa Shire mayor Paul Miegel is still wondering if he should run again. “It’s unlikely,” he said. “It was stated that I certainly wasn’t, but that could have been a slight exaggeration.” I’m weighing everything right now. “Cr Miegel was the last mayor of Corowa Shire before the merger in 2016.
