Redland City Council has a new Mayor and two new councillors among the 11 who will represent the city for the next four years, with the new council sworn in yesterday.

Jos Mitchell (pictured) was elected as Mayor of Redland City, replacing the controversial Karen Williams, who made headlines in 2022 when she pleaded guilty to high-range drink driving charges after crashing her Council-owned car while more than three times over the legal blood-alcohol limit following a Council meeting.

Shane Rendalls was elected as Councillor for Division 5, replacing retiring councillor Mark Edwards, and Jason Colley was elected as Councillor for Division 9, replacing former councillor Adelia Berridge.
