Dear Fellow Resident,
I’m Anna and together with my team I am seeking your support to be elected as a Naremburn Ward Councillor for Willoughby City Council. On the ticket I lead, I am ably supported by Shelagh Kemm and Nick Felton.
I’m a proud local girl: Born and raised in the city of Willoughby. I was educated at St Leonards School, Naremburn then at Willoughby Girls High School. I still live in our wonderful city of Willoughby with my husband Robert and my two teenage daughters.
I’m not a politician-type person. I am a qualified Chartered Accountant and these days I run a small business as a health and fitness coach with a deep concern for community well-being. I’m running to be a Naremburn Ward Councillor because I feel the community voice on local issues is often ignored.
I have led a six-year campaign for the preservation of the historic Artarmon Bowling Club site that has seen the demolition of the clubhouse (thankfully) suspended and talks have resumed for an enhanced facility that meets community needs and the expectation for heritage conservation in our city.
With over 20 years experience as a Chartered Accountant, I understand that community and environmental programs cannot exist without sound financial management. My financial and analytical skills, coupled with my commitment to our local community, are needed to uphold Willoughby’s City Strategy for a liveable city.
When elected, I aim to make honesty, transparency and accountability words of action. I aim to live by these, along with perseverance and integrity in the pursuit of justice and equity for the citizens of our amazing City of Willoughby.
Anna, Nick and Shelagh.
