Phelps on track to be Sydney mayor
Former AMA President Dr Kerryn Phelps has been tipped as a future Sydney Lord Mayor after being elected to the position of deputy mayor.
Dr Phelps won the deputy mayor role with a seven-to-two vote at a Sydney council meeting late last month, after successfully standing for election on a ticket led by incumbent Lord Mayor Clover Moore. Ms Moore won the mayoralty for a record fourth time.
Dr Phelps is being positioned to succeed Ms Moore, and told the Daily Telegraph she was planning a “very exciting and energetic and busy year ahead”.
