As a Liberal Democrat & Victoria Park resident since 1991, I want to see our council concentrate on service delivery - keeping our streets safe, maintaining our roads and amenities, and collecting our rubbish - at a reasonable cost, and interfering as little as possible in the lives of local residents.
I want a streamlined planning system, and a one-stop-shop for residents with concerns. In Victoria Park, I'm particularly keen to seek a moratorium on rates increases, establish free parking for ratepayers in the Town precinct, see no change to the observance of Australia Day, and have a council with an ‘open for business’ philosophy. I'm committed to making sure this happens, if elected.
I'm confident that a freeze on rates increases is possible and a line-by-line review of our local budget will yield savings to facilitate it. In summary - No increase in rates, no decrease in services!

I have lived in, and been in touch with, the Victoria Park community over my entire lifetime and am committed to doing a great job in representing you on council.
I ran a successful photography business in the Town over many years as well as helping progress our community by having been actively involved in Rotary, Sporting clubs, School P&F’s, Youth groups, Rostrum, St Vincent de Paul and in establishing a Men’s shed. I was awarded the Victoria Park Australia Day Award in 2015, endorsing my commitment to our community.
I will always make myself available to listen to your concerns relating to Council issues and strive to achieve the best possible outcome for ratepayers on matters such as waste management, new developments, safety, environment, parking, community facilities and rates.
We have a fantastic community, and would love your support to keep it that way by being elected your councillor.

I bought my home in Victoria Park in 1997, and loved it so much I stayed. I have seen the Town evolve into a vibrant community, with an exciting but challenging future.
I have practised as a lawyer for 23 years. I am the Chairperson of the Homeless and Mental Health Services Advisory Committee of the St Vincent de Paul Society and sit on the Board of the National Stroke Foundation. I am honest, hardworking and fair-minded. I will be an independent voice, a fresh face with no political alignments.
* a diverse progressive agenda that strikes a balance between the economic, social and environmental interests of the whole community;
* proper community consultation;
* real transparency;
* strengthened financial sustainability;
* healthy landscapes for healthy communities;
* good governance – not lip service.
I believe you deserve honest, accountable councillors who always put their community first. If elected, I’m committing to delivering that outcome.

I decided to contest this election because I believe that I have the ability to make a difference. I am a very experienced economics teacher, presently employed on a part time basis at Perth Modern School. I also have an interest in a small business and have volunteered in various not for profit organisations. This means I understand the problems faced by households and by small business in the current economic climate. I feel that I have the ability to listen to arguments and to make judgments which provide the greatest benefits for the majority of residents involved.
I am a father and a grandfather who has spent most of my adult working life in the company of young people. This means that although I am chronologically advantaged the young people I work with have kept me young.

COLLINS, Joshua David
Victoria Park has always been a hot pot of cultures from around the world and is unique in WA if not all of Australia. This is my home and I have a keen interest to ensure that my home/our home prospers as a community.
We have recently experienced large changes which will naturally impact how the Council engages and is engaged with the community. This positive change will lead to short, medium and long term benefits but if not managed with due thought, consultation and consideration could lead Victoria Park to lose perspective and touch with the people and businesses.
-Healthy business growth
-Diversity – Celebrating our hot pot.
-Exemplary and efficient Council services
-Health and wellbeing for all members of our community.
-Keeping the ‘Park’ in Victoria Park – Our parks and trees are sacred to our very name.
Any and all questions, please contact me.
|I am a passionate, active and engaged Victoria Park local. I have a strong interest in sustainable community development and a vision for how local government can go beyond consultation and work with the community to achieve a safer, more sustainable and active Town.
1) Manage increase in population density through smart, sustainable and appropriate infill development;
2) Maintain, expand and improve open and green spaces;
3) Provide safe, energy efficient and cost-effective transport options;
4) Effective and transparent decision making considering financial, social and environmental aspects, and;
5) Strong financial management in line with strategic priorities.
My accomplishments include developing two multi-award-winning housing projects in Lathlain, establishment of Rutland Avenue Sump Community Garden and Urban Orchard, improving bicycle infrastructure with funding for the first section of the Rutland Avenue upgrade allocated; and effecting changes to planning policy and decision-making processes.
I am positive, honest and committed.

I believe the core responsibilities of a councillor are to ensure Council’s strong financial accountability and effective community consultation. I have the experience to analyse and manage substantial budgets.
As a long-time resident I have seen our Town develop into a diverse and exciting community. I want to serve to protect our heritage and environment. Over the years I have fought to retain and expand the Town’s parks and I will continue to do so. With our housing densities projected to increase it has never been more important to give families, seniors and young people places to come together, to relax or play.
For safety I will focus on improving street lighting, safe footpaths and playgrounds, plus reducing traffic in residential streets. I will promote the formulation of policy to reduce the impact of stadium traffic throughout the Town including the Peninsula area. Please vote.

As an energetic and engaged local resident, I will bring fresh perspective to Council. Well qualified with a degree in Economics, I have the knowledge and experience to provide rigorous oversight of financial decisions and ensure prudent management of ratepayers’ funds.
I will use my proven administration and governance skills to foster sensible, accountable local government. I will place strong importance on sustaining and building Victoria Park’s infrastructure, to ensure our community and sporting groups continue to thrive. My goal is to see the continued growth of Victoria Park as one of the State’s premier inner city communities, balancing prosperity and vibrancy with relaxed liveability and a family friendly community.
As an independent candidate with no business interests in Victoria Park, I will be a voice for my fellow residents, ensuring that I am open and approachable to hear directly from you and I respectfully ask for your vote.

In a sea of carefully crafted words and promises that will be apparent in these profiles, there are those who are quietly (and sometimes loudly) making a difference in our community.
During the Lathlain Park development I submitted comprehensive submissions on behalf of the community. Ultimately, my recommendation for 6:1 tree replacement was adopted as a condition. I tabled a motion for the development of the town’s Urban Forest Strategy which was adopted by council. Two local community groups (one of which I started) are right now working on this ground breaking document.
As a Community Reference Group member for the Lathlain Development I pushed for the Bowls Club to be included as part of the Lathlain development leading to the design of a new park for Carlisle.
Currently, I’m working on new ways to collaborate with the community. Check my website out and join me in planning our town!
