Wednesday 18 January 2023

For immediate release

Tosh-Jake Finnigan has been elected as a councillor for Colac Otway Shire Council, after the Victorian Electoral Commission conducted a countback of votes at 12 noon today.

The election manager, Roger Millar, today declared the result after a countback of votes from the general election held in October 2020.

Only those candidates who were unsuccessful at the general election and who were still eligible to be elected were included in the countback process.

The extraordinary vacancy arose due to the election of Councillor Joe McCracken to the Victorian Parliament.
