This Day in History: 1992-05-02

The Toodyay local government elections were not held on the advertised date of 2 May. There were three vacancies to be filled, one each in the East, West and Central Wards, due to retiring Shire Councillors. However, all three were re-elected unopposed:  Robert Somers (East), Janice I. Ferguson (West) and Allan J. Newton (Central). Robert (Bob) Somers was later elected Shire President. Robert J. Millar was the Shire Clerk (since August 1986).
