IT is safe to say it has been a busy few weeks for Cockburn councillor Stephen Pratt.

The Central ward councillor was juggling council duties with his work as a research officer for Kwinana’s Labor candidate Roger Cook in the lead-up to the State Election.

But it was the arrival of his first child, Imogen Elena Pratt, with wife Elena that has kept him up most nights.

Little Imogen was welcomed into the world on March 1, three weeks earlier than anticipated.

“There’ have been a few sleepless nights. Elena is doing well. She’s hit the ground running,” he said.
