Hotly contested election for realigned City of Wanneroo wards

SIX candidates will vie for two seats in the Central ward in the upcoming Wanneroo elections.

The realigned ward has absorbed several suburbs from the existing North ward, which will merge with the Coastal ward.

Current North ward councillor Norm Hewer, who lives in Carramar, has renominated for a Central seat after six years on the council.

Another incumbent, Frank Cvitan, of Madeley, has also renominated, having served on the council from 1999 to 2009, then 2011 to present.

Two Tapping residents have put their hands up – father-of-three Travis Robinson and nurse Samantha Fenn, who has two children.

Carramar estimator John Agnew is also vying for votes, having moved to Australia from South Africa seven years ago. Ashby father Barry Lloyd has lived in the suburb for a decade, and volunteers in junior sport.

The Central ward covers Carabooda, Pinjar, Nowergup, Neerabup, Carramar, Banksia Grove, Tapping, Mariginiup, Jandabup, Ashby, Sinagra, Wanneroo, Hocking and Pearsall.
