Rich was elected to the council in 1995 for the Medindie/Gilberton ward. He was elected mayor in May 2000 after the resignation of Rosemary Craddock in April. She was interim Mayor until the May elections.
Rich was re-elected as mayor in May 2003 but retired from the office of Mayor and from the council altogether in the November 2006 Elections. This election was the first synchronized South Australian Local Government Elections. During Rich's second term as Mayor, the Walkerville Terrace precinct was revitalised and the Walkerville Sports and Bowling Clubs were upgraded. Urban development increased slightly.
Rich was responsible for the major reconstruction of Hawkers Road and Herbert Street that took place in 2003. The western footpath on Ascot Avenue was replaced. On 1 January 2004, Stage 1 of the Town Centre redevelopment became active with opposition from residents, but the council maintained that without this redevelopment, the Town Centre would stop functioning as a business hub. The three-bin waste collection service began on 1 January 2004. 2005 was the 150th anniversary of Walkerville. Many celebrations were held.
