Adams guarded on mayoral race

By EMMA CORNFORD

COUNCILLOR-elect Shirley Adams has confirmed she will not run for mayor when the Clarence Valley Council convenes for the first time next week.

The former mayor of Grafton, who held the position of deputy mayor for six years and mayor for seven, said she had not yet decided who she would support in the mayoral race.

Currently Chris Gulaptis is the only candidate to have publicly declared his intention to vie for the top position, but Ian Tiley is also expected to run.

"I've got no comment about (support) at this stage," Mrs Adams said.

"I think when the time for the meeting comes I'll go in and make up my mind about it then."

Mrs Adams would not rule out running for deputy mayor but said it was 'early'.

"I just got back and I want to communicate with people before I make a decision and that's all I have to say about that right now."
