Mary O'Byrne for North Ward

I am running to be the City of Joondalup North Ward Councillor. Educated in Midwifery, General Sciences and former TAFE lecturer I’ve spent my whole life embedded in local communities offering the skill-set of a listening, active, caring, compassionate person. I serve on four volunteer committees, Coast-Care (2), Duncraig Edible Garden and Kinross Residents Association. 

I'm committed to transparent, interactive community consultation.  If considerable sums of ratepayer funds are required for any one Local Government project, then I will propose to council a minimum number of ratepayer feedback per suburb before that project can be adopted. 

I don't have any business interests or other affiliations, and so I rely on help from ordinary memebers of the community. 

Please get in touch if you would like to know more about about my vision for a better Council, and check out my facebook page.



-Advocacy
– effective and transparent governance supported by more direct ratepayer involvement.

-Equality – greater input and better representation of women and young people on the Council.

-Sustainability – increasing energy efficiency with better lighting and recycling systems, and easier access to better public transport. Support for a container deposit scheme and a ban on plastic bags.

 -Economy – a better deal for small and medium businesses, and City planning that works for ordinary people and small business.

 -Community Gardens – involving community members young and old alike, and helping poorer members of our society.

 -Community Safety – minimum standards of facilities in each suburb to prevent over-centralisation and to bring control to residents.
