DIVISION 9 councillor Stuart Taylor has rocketed up the rankings in the polls of councillor satisfation this week as the total votes cast nears 3000.

Cr Taylor was languishing with most of the other councillors with a satisfaction rating in the mid-20s on Monday morning but two days later and his rating has shot up to 60%.

New Deputy Mayor George Seymour has lost some ground to now sit at 57%, putting Cr Taylor in the lead.

There was also a change at the bottom of the rankings, with the 16% rating of Division 3's Chris Loft now sitting behind Division 5's Rolf Light.

The rating of the council as a whole remained poor, however it was not as bad as on Monday morning.

The lowest rating of one out of 10 still has 35% of the votes, however the ten out of ten rating has increased to 15%.

The total number of votes was 1300 on Monday morning and by Wednesday morning had reached 2995.

Readers can still cast their votes with the polls to remain open until noon on Friday.
