MILDURA deputy mayor Ali ­Cupper says she does not believe she will need to step down from her leadership role on the council, ­despite having announced her ­intention to contest the seat of ­Mildura at November’s state election. 

Cr Cupper’s decision has the support of Mayor Mark Eckel, who said she was capable of handling both positions. “As I do with all the candidates, I wish them the best,” Cr Eckel said. 

“I would hope that Ali’s standing might generate additional interest – the more candidates we have, the more opportunities we have of people standing for important ­issues within our community, in particular, the ­social issues.”
