I love Fremantle and have lived here most of my life. I’ve seen our city change in many ways over the years, and I’m excited about our future.

As your local councillor for the past eight years, I have helped residents and businesses with issues, and initiated and contributed to decisions that have helped reform and improve our city. I work constructively and collaboratively on Council to get things done for our community.

I am currently focussed on improving Council’s capacity to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and bringing more jobs and people to Fremantle through economic development. I am also committed to Council’s One Planet principles, to reduce our environmental impact while enhancing social cohesion and community well -being.

I also sit on the Strategic Transport and Planning Committee and the Finance and Policy, Operations and Legislation Committee, the Audit and Risk Committee and the state governments’ South West Metropolitan Joint Development Assessment Panel.

I ask you to put your trust in me again so that I may continue to work for you and collectively deliver a more vibrant, sustainable, liveable and prosperous city.

The Disability Liaison Group would be made up of people with a disability, or perhaps disability advocates, who would advise the Council and City administration on issues affecting them. It would be a two-way flow of information where the City could get feedback on service or infrastructure plans and changes, and the Group could raise issues of concern or interest they would like the City to follow up.
