New Lord Mayor for Newcastle NSW

Many congratulations to Nuatali Nelmes, who has been elected as Lord Mayor of Newcastle, New South Wales. This follows the election last month of her Labor Party colleague Tim Crakanthorp as the new Member of the New South Wales State Parliament to represent Newcastle. Both Nuatali and Tim come to their new positions from having been Newcastle City Councillors.
