Meet the Yank council candidates

A Q and A event for candidates in the District Council of Yankalilla by-election will be held on Thursday 11 July at The Normanville Hotel,

The event, hosted by the Yankalilla District Residents Association, will start at 6pm.

There are three candidates for the vacancy in Light Ward: Gavin Denton, Karin Hatch and Shane Grocke.

Normanville resident Mr Denton says he and his wife retired to the district in 2021 after many years of visiting.

A former senior manager in the plumbing and hardware industry, he is an active volunteer involved with Yankalilla Men’s Shed, Probus, ACH aged care, Normanville Table Tennis and Victor Harbor Archery Club.

Carrickalinga resident Karin Hatch says she and her husband and two dogs retired to their long term holiday home in 2020.

A former scientist and researcher, she believes councils should return to their core responsibilities of roads, rates and rubbish while maintaining respect and responsiveness to residents.

Shane Grocke has been a resident of Normanville since 2019 and is inaugural chair of the Yankalilla Normanville Progress Association.

A photographer who has also run an IT company, he has served on Yankalilla Area School Governing Council and facilitated the Yankalilla Community Forum on Facebook.

The Electoral Commission of South Australia has mailed out voting papers to eligible voters, which are due to be returned by 12noon on Monday 22 July.

Scrutiny and counting of the votes will take place the following day.

Full details of the candidates and the supplementary election can be found on the ECSA website.
