In the entry on Barkly Regional Council Mayor Steve Edgington, the compiler of the list of the 120 most powerful people in 2018 wrote the following: "If you want to find a mayor who delivers, look no further than this man. As Mayor of the Barkly, Edgington has endured a tough year after Tennant Creek was thrust on to the national stage for all the wrong reasons earlier this year. Edgington confronted the issues head on, didn't try to spin his way out of it but he has continued to promote the good things happening in this region. The $60 million regional Barkly deal wouldn't have happened without his lobbying and honesty. If this was a list about mayors across Australia for their performance in 2018, Edgington would make an excellent case for No. 1. He is seriously, seriously good. If he runs for a spot in Territory parliament in 2020, you can bet your bottom dollar he'll make it to the white house at the end of Mitchell Street."
