sagne, pot plants, books, cakes and biscuits.
Guild president Helen Cook said she was
pleased with the turnout.
"I think the day went very well," she

barbecue for lunch.
"Most things were sold around 11.30am
and it was getting quite hot, so we finished
the day then.

local government will be complementary to
what I've been working on already."
Meanwhile the Electoral Commission was
yet to count all of the Mid Murray Council
votes as of yesterday morning.
However, it had confirmed that Dave Bur-
gess was re-elected as mayor for a second term.
Mr Burgess won the position with 1513 votes,
narrowly defeating David Peake's 1422 votes.
Mr Burgess said he looked forward to con-
tinuing to serve the Mid Murray Council for
another four years as mayor.
"I am very grateful and privileged to repre-
sent Mid Murray for the next four years," he
"I think with the support I have been given
during my time with council and the achieve-
ments we have made got me across the line.
"I still have the enthusiasm and passion for
Mid Murray, and I think we have a great future
in farming, agriculture and tourism.
"I look forward to working with new council
members and with those who have returned to
help them with their achievements and goals
and bring them to fruition in the next few
Local Government Association SA president
David O'Loughlin said an extra 4000 voters
lifted statewide voter turnout to 31 per cent,
only slightly behind the last two local govern-

Mr O'Loughlin congratulated the Electoral
Commission and the band of vote counters and
scrutineers who worked over the weekend to
provide provisional figures.
Trevor Quast set
to join council
