Mitchell Shire’s Central Ward councillor Kelley Stewart has announced her resignation effective from April 10.

Cr Stewart cited personal circumstances for her resignation and will no longer be eligible to serve as a councillor.

‘‘Since first moving to the shire and in all the time I have been a councillor, the community have welcomed and supported me in my role as a neighbour, friend and acquaintance,’’ Cr Stewart said.

‘‘While I leave with a heavy heart, I am absolutely convinced that my fellow councillors will continue to represent the community fairly, delivering good outcomes.’’

The Victorian Electoral Commission has initiated a count back of votes from the 2012 election, which is likely to occur in May.

There will not be a by-election.
