Mark Geary is seeking a return to Armadale’s council fewer than two years after finishing a two-term tenure representing the city’s southwestern suburbs.

An extraordinary election will be held at the City of Armadale to fill a vacancy caused by Hugh Jones’ election to state parliament in the March.

Whoever wins will represent the city’s River ward, which encompasses the suburbs of Kelmscott and Mount Nasura.

Mr Geary is one of four candidates running in the election.

He previously served on council between 2011 and 2019, representing the city’s Neerigen ward.

That ward, which is based on the suburbs of Harrisdale, Haynes, Brookdale and Wungong, has since been renamed Ranford.

He will face competition from Kelmscott resident and former councillor Arthur Kleyn.

Mr Kleyn was the Australian Christians’ nominated candidate for the seat of Armadale at the most recent state election.

Mount Nasura resident Fiona Evans and local parishioner, school board member and volunteer firefighter John Keogh will also contest the council seat.

The election to replace Mr Jones will be held on July 3.
