Three men vying for lone council spot in Town of Mosman Park’s south ward

A BY-ELECTION for a new Mosman Park councillor has attracted a former school administrator, a geologist and a small businessman.

The February 23 by-election is for the solitary position representing the south ward in Mosman Park.

It was caused by former south ward councillor Brett Pollock winning the town’s mayoral race last October.

Former Christchurch Grammar school administrator, Andrew Baird, said if elected he would improve the council’s customer service, control the budget, develop youth activities and underground power in the town.

Chair of the Mosman Park Primary School board Tim Fairbanks has lived in the town for 10 years, and said he wanted more bicycle and pedestrian paths, and increased care for the suburb’s bush, while maintaining financial responsibility.

Geologist and small business owner Mick Micenko, a resident of 27 years, said he was interested in the development of Rocky Bay and the rights of residents and business owners.

Postal ballots sent to all registered voters from next Thursday must be returned by mail to the WA Electoral Commission by February 23.
