The Tasmanian Electoral Commission has today informed the City of Hobart Council that Will Coats has been elected to the Council on a recount.
The position became available following the resignation of Simon Behrakis, who was elected to the Tasmanian Parliament’s House of Assembly for the seat of Clark.
Hobart Lord Mayor, Anna Reynolds congratulated Mr Coats on his return.
“Having worked with Mr Coats previously, it should ensure a smooth addition to the Hobart City Council,” Lord Mayor Reynolds said.
“Congratulations to Will and I look forward to working with you in the future for the betterment of the residents of Hobart.”
Mr Coats (pictured) is expected to be sworn in at the next Hobart City Council meeting on 27 November.
