The election of DA Councillor Leon van Wyk as the new mayor of George was an historical event. "To our knowledge it is the first time a mayor has been elected in a virtual council meeting," said DA Constituency Head Geordin Hill-Lewis. The special council meeting last Friday was also the first electronic council meeting for George Council. Earlier attempts to hold such a meeting during lockdown had been unsuccessful. Voting took place at the Conville and Blanco community centres and the Thembalethu Thusong Centre.
