Ararat is awash with speculation about the whereabouts of Ararat mayor Glenda McLean.

Media outlets have been running stories on radio and online asking questions, some of them based on ‘sources’, suggesting Cr McLean had or was in the process of leaving town and had even started a new job in Queensland.

The Weekly Advertiser, in response to persistent inquiries about Cr McLean’s whereabouts, made several attempts to gain confirmation about the rumours without success. Research included several direct calls to Cr McLean, all of which were unanswered and not returned.

Deputy mayor Cr Gwenda Allgood and chief executive Allan Bawden said today they were unaware of Cr McLean’s whereabouts, although Mr Bawden said he had been aware that Cr McLean had been pursuing interstate consultancy work and that she had attended council briefings via teleconferencing.

Both said they expected Cr McLean to attend Tuesday night’s council meeting.
