Kidd nominates for another term

Kidd nominates for another term

Councillor Red Kidd yesterday became the 20th candidate to nominate for the Orange City Council elections on September 8, while Councillor Fiona Rossiter became the third councillor to announce she will not stand.

Councillor Rossiter, who was elected in 2004, joins Councillor Peter Hetherington and Greens member of the NSW upper house, Jeremy Buckingham, in stepping down.

She says her decision not to stand for re-election is centred on the need to put her family first.

The Orange electoral commission office could see a late rush, with Councillors Jeff Whitton, Glenn Taylor, Chris Gryllis, Gavin Priestly, Jason Hamling and Sam Romano, all saying they will stand.

In announcing his nomination, Councillor Kidd says he wants to see the council return to better communication with the community.
