Businessman seeks re-election


A City of Canning councillor who is up for election in October said he had enjoyed his experience on council but hoped he could do more for the city if he were re-elected.

Councillor David Brown is a representative of the Beeliar ward, which takes up most of Willetton and a small pocket of Leeming.

He was elected in 2015 on a two-year term and is a member of the Welshpool Business Enterprise Centre, the CEO of the Performance and Salary Review committee, and the Joint Development Assessment Panel.

He said one of his biggest achievements since joining council was helping save Willetton’s Hilltop Rise Park from being broken up and sold off as residential properties, which was decided in July.

“I have really enjoyed learning more about local government best practice and working with the team to make it happen,” he said.

“It has been a privilege being elected to serve the community with a diverse group of councillors, bringing different views and experience to the important transition back to community representation at the city.”

Dr Brown has been a Willetton resident for more than 20 years and his children attended schools in the area.

He said he had been in leadership groups at Canning sports clubs and was a member of the Regional Park advisory committee.

A business owner, Dr Brown said his experience in medical, IT and business had helped him work with the city, community and Canning businesses.

He said his main priorities were developing the city’s libraries, assisting the Willetton Basketball Association and increasing tree canopy area across the city.

The Beeliar Ward seat is one of five in the City of Canning up for election in October.

The election will be held on October 21.
