GAWLER mayoral candidate John
Bolton has issued an apology after
circulating an inaccurate and mislead-
ing statement about fellow candidate
Karen Redman during his election
Electoral Commission SA last week
found Mr Bolton breached the provisions
of section 28 of the Local Government
(Elections) Act, which discusses the pub-
lication of misleading material.
Mrs Redman last month lodged a com-
plaint against Mr Bolton after the local
lawyer stated she was part of a four-piece
group that controlled council.
Mrs Redman's complaint disputed other
allegations made by Mr Bolton regard-
ing her independence, including that she
was a puppet of fellow councillor Adrian
However, those complaints were un-
founded by the SA Electoral Commission-
er Kay Mousley.
Mousley requested Mr Bolton retract
the statement regarding four people con-
trolling council and issue an apology on
the relevant social media pages.
Mrs Redman said it was unfortunate
there was a need to take action but she was
Mr Bolton said he did not regret mak-
ing the comments and felt the Electoral
Commissioner's ruling had not damaged
his mayoral campaign.
"I'm surprised that (Mrs) Redman
stooped to attempting to gag my more vig-
orous aspects of the political campaign,"
Mr Bolton lodged a complaint to the
Electoral Commissioner in October prior
to last week's outcome.
However, Mr Bolton's complaint was
deemed outside Ms Mousley's jurisdic-
Meanwhile, Mallala councillor Joe
Daniele has also apologised to mayoral
candidate Tony Flaherty, following nu-
merous incidents where Cr Daniele made
"unfounded and untruthful" statements in
front of council and the Two Wells com-
munity about Mr Flaherty.
The final weeks of the campaign
saw both Mrs Redman and Mr Bol-
ton lodging complaints to the Elec-
toral Commission of South Australia,
which found Mr Bolton had breached
the Local Government (Elections)
Mrs Redman said she was honoured
to be elected by the community.
She stands as Gawler's first publicly
elected female mayor, however follows
in the footsteps of Helena Dawkins,
who briefly served as mayor in 2006
after stepping into the position when
Tony Piccolo won a position in State
Parliament as the Member for Light.
Mrs Redman said she wanted to
grow the culture of female leadership
because "that's one thing that Gawler
"I think we've had some great fe-
male leaders, but I'd like to really try
and develop a leadership forum, if
you like, of women," she said.
Mrs Redman said she would also
be throwing her support behind the
Gawler Community Plan as well as
the town hall and institute redevelop-
"I intend to regionally establish a
real place for Gawler as a place to be
really looked at, to be admired and
respected, and a place for people to
come and enjoy," she said.
But getting to better know the peo-
ple in the community will be among
her first priorities.
"There are people that voted for me
that wouldn't know me, they put their
meet people and ensure that I come
up to their expectations," she said.
Mr Graham congratulated Mrs
Redman on her win and thanked his
supporters for their votes.
He said he had no plans to run for
council in the future.
The Bunyip could not reach Mr
Bolton for comment.
Mr Bolton was standing in his sec-
ond mayoral contest, having lost to
Brian Sambell at the 2010 count.
On his Facebook campaign page,
Mr Bolton's last post recorded that he
had suffered a "resounding loss" and
he offered thanks to "all supporters".

Gawler - too lovely to litter
I intend to regionally
