Dinny Adem elected to Council in countback

Dinny Adem was today elected to Greater Shepparton City Council in a countback, following the resignation of Councillor Rob Priestly last month.


The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) conducted the countback of the votes from the October 2020 Council Election to determine who the incoming Councillor would be.

Mr Adem was previously elected to Council in 2016 and served as Deputy Mayor from 2019 to 2020, before retiring from Council.

Mayor, Councillor Shane Sali congratulated Mr Adem on his appointment, saying he looked forward to working alongside him in his new position as Councillor.

“On behalf of Council, I welcome Dinny to the team and look forward to working with him to achieve strong outcomes for our community,” he said.

Mr Adem has 48 hours to formally accept the position, and if so, will be officially sworn in as Councillor next week.
