There will be no race for the mayor’s seat in West Perth next month.

Incumbent Walter McKenzie remained the only person in the running after the nomination deadline.

McKenzie hopes part of the reason was that nobody felt change was needed in his position. He says the last four years was a successful period where West Perth council was able to find common ground.

There will be a race for councillor positions in Fullarton, Logan and Mitchell wards, as well as for Deputy Mayor.
