Casey council’s ruling majority – controlled by its sinister CEO Mike Tyler – has been annihilated.
The junta – headed by Labor leftist Janet Halsall – has been decimated with her thrown out unceremoniously as Mayor and councillor.
Her colleague, the sneaky Steve Beardon, once considered a master media manipulator has been a casualty too of his blind support for Tyler, losing his own seat too. Indeed some observers say Beardon has been too clever by half, running a dummy candidate and losing to her. D’oh.
The unofficial leader of the anti-Tyler rebellion, Labor moderate Kevin Bradford was re-elected in a stunning display of people power after his repudiation of Tyler’s policies and neglect which led to the poisoning of an entire housing estate by a municipal tip mismanaged on Tyler’s watch.
Tyler was present for the count and is reported have gone a very sickly shade of pale when the results were declared. We are unable to confirm whether he was looking at seek.com on his Blackberry.
