Election winner eyes Shire, health services
Peter Narducci has won the Shire of Pingelly’s extraordinary election, beating Karmvir Singh by 16 votes.
A total of 154 votes were received in the election, held last Friday, with Mr Narducci winning 85 votes to Mr Singh’s 69.
Mr Narducci said he was honoured to have such great support from the town.
“I want to thank all the people who are prepared for me to take on this role,” he said.
“I will definitely listen and work hard towards what we need to achieve.”
Up against Pingelly Hotel owner Mr Singh, who arrived in town in late 2017, Mr Narducci said it was a hard result to predict.
“I think we are both on different wavelengths,” he said.
“I’ve been in town all my life involved with business and fire services.
“I’m looking at doing whatever possible to make Pingelly a great place to live.”
As a newly elected councillor, Mr Narducci said he wanted to focus on helping youths and the elderly in the community.
“I want to make sure the town has the services to meet people’s needs from a local government and health point of view,” he said.
“Times are changing and I want to embrace those changes.”
