Three mayors: Brad Pettitt, Richard Utting, Jenny Archibald. Richard is signing a copy of his autobiography, Out of Sight: Reflections on an Accidental Life.
The Wikipedia page entitled List of Mayors of Fremantle lists mayors from the time of the Fremantle Town Trust and Town of Fremantle. However, I believe that the first mayor to be appropriately so called was Barrington Wood, the first mayor of the Municipality of Fremantle. The men who presided at meetings of the Town Trust and Council were properly called chairmen.
