ANDY WILLIAMS

As a young person in Carlisle I know what people want Vic Park to look like tomorrow. My studies in architecture and my recent connection to student life make me uniquely placed to understand the intersection of healthy environments, what makes communities vibrant and the inspirational nature of good design.

I believe that the council has the obligation to provide a true reflection of all of our communities’ colours and strengths; equitable access to services and housing by all members of our society, including our flora and fauna; the inclusion and care of our young and most vulnerable, and the strategic partnering with our strongest; balance between steering towards future aspirations while attending to the needs of the present. I aim to drive this process from obligation to fruition.

Compassionate, strong and dedicated;

As a long time resident having grown up within the Town, I am seeking re-election. Since being elected at the extraordinary election in February 2020, I've been appointed to a number of advisory and working groups as well as having worked on two council budget cycles.

I want to continue to represent you and be a voice that shapes the future direction of the Town, that benefits all residents and ratepayers, now and into the future ensuring that our Town continues to be highly liveable, sustainable, and inclusive. The past year has seen a lot of uncertainty and now more than ever, I believe it is important to have someone who is experienced in working in council and able to make decisions for our collective futures.

All I ask is for one of your two votes.

I am a young professional living in our Town, and can offer a strong analytical mindset, pragmatic approach and diversity to Council.

I was a Federal Prosecutor and CCC lawyer. I am now the RSPCA WA's Prosecutor. I will rigorously consider both sides of any proposal before Council and ask the difficult questions.

I love our entertainment strip. I will advocate within Council for increased parking; support for recreational facilities, parks and local business; improvement of local roads; and ways to limit rate increases to ensure we achieve the best results for our community now and into the future!
