Mayor candidates shorten as Ballarat councillor rules himself out of race


Another Ballarat councillor has taken himself out of the mayoral race next month.

Peter Eddy says he just wants to be a good councillor, and given his age he can serve Ballarat better outside the mayoral chair.

He says current mayor Daniel Moloney's done a fine job in what's been a trying time for the city.

"He does a terrific job and has been good at growing the council, that said I think there will be one or two other people who will put their hand up and be equally as strong in different ways," he said.
