"It shows that a lot of the councils recognise the leadership qualities that I show in my council," Cr Holmdahl said.
"I have been in local government for ten years so I'm very up-to-date with the sort of issues we face as a sector.
"I've been involved with recent issues that have affected how local government was going to work."
