I am seeking your vote to become an active new voice for Mill Point Ward, on our Council. I am currently a strong advocate on important local issues such as the necessity to balance the demands of State Government, with respect to Urban Infill, with the needs and aspirations of our community. I have provided numerous submissions to Council and State Government while also maintaining a committed involvement in a wide variety of local community and sporting groups. My professional background is in Education and my family and I are long term residents of South Perth. I believe it is time for me to move from ‘behind the scenes’, to a position on Council where I can truly make a difference and bring about a better Mill Point Ward for us all. Help me to support you!
