Our Team

 

 

Anna Greco BCom, CA

 

I’m a 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.

I was born at North Shore Hospital, raised in Willoughby, live in Artarmon and am raising a family in the Naremburn Ward. I’m a lawyer in sole-practice and have worked from home in Artarmon well before that kind of arrangement was forced on us all by the pandemic. In my day job my role is to represent some of our society’s most vulnerable, stigmatised and ostracised people so I know what it takes to stand up for other people.

I am particularly interested in issues around transparency and accountability. In my view, local Council’s should be made up of fiercely independent people, who are not members of the political machine. Did you know that a candidate can say they are independent when in fact they belong to a political party?

Our team represents all the generations in the Naremburn Ward and, if elected, we will work very hard to keep you informed about the activities of Council and strive to implement our election goals.

Willoughby, particularly Artarmon has become my adopted Country, as an immigrant to Australia 40 years ago.

I’m about Community, you have probably seen me helping my husband Tony, dropping off a pile Artarmon Gazettes for you to deliver or selling preserves in aid of The Toy Library. This year my cause to support is Homelessness.

Remember our Artarmon Reserve 20 years ago? Persistent care and attention from the Bushcare Retirees, including me, has encouraged its’ resilience, and welcomed back our local native habitat species.  It has also changed the Bushcare volunteers, and  provided occupation, support and  friendship in those strange unrecognisable days of early retirement, ‘maturing’ not to mention personal loss!

Be it in the Church, the Bowling Club, the tennis Clubs,  etc etc, I love being part of Artarmon’s friendly, homely, welcoming, supportive self. Albeit less actively now.

There is need for more attention to detail in Willoughby Council policies and everyday working to filter into our world here on the ground..

We are about is those important, but rarely quantified or qualified values which often get relegated to the too hard basket.  We are very open to suggestions from you.
