Kogarah mayor returned to role

Nickolas Varvaris was re-elected as Kogarah mayor last night.

Cr Varvaris was elected without opposition, having recently lead the Liberal party to a six-seat landslide in local government elections.

Michael Platt, a Labor councillor and former mayor, was the sole nominee for the deputy mayor role.

He will replace Labor colleague Jacinta Petroni in the position.
