I am proud to have represented you on Council for the past four years, most recently as Melville's Deputy Mayor and would be delighted to continue advocating for you and enhancing our wonderful community.

Do you want change in Melville Council? Do you want your voice heard and your concerns addressed?

A vote for me means you have a strong voice representing you in Council. I am independent, but will work collaboratively with others to make change happen.

I have lived in Kardinya for over 21 years, raising my sons here. I have been a positive part of the local community and strongly support local businesses.

As a professional Clinical Psychologist of 30 years experience, I know how to really listen, communicate and advocate. I will utilise these skills as your Council representative.

I value open spaces and the environment and will keep a close watch on building density and development. I believe rates should be kept as low as possible, whilst maintaining quality services for ratepayers.

Regardless of your age, education or ethnic background, I will work for you.

Ballot Paper Name: STOKES, Tony

Nominating for: Councillor for Bateman,Kardinya,Murdoch Ward


Parking at Fiona Stanley Hospital and generally in the Murdoch precinct is a nightmare.

Even more traffic will come onto Murdoch Drive from the Roe offramp. A multi-storey carpark must be built, and soon for TAFE, FSH and the expanded area.

I grew up in Applecross, studied at Aquinas and Murdoch University and have developed two small businesses. I helped raise two sons. I now reside in Kardinya and am active in our community as a member and volunteer.

Kardinya Park Shopping Centre revamp must be closely monitored. Bert Jeffrey Park issues must be fairly resolved.

Our City finances are solid. Rates have only increased CPI level. Yet Council needs fair judgement and not just two factions. Council must be approachable and inclusive.

As this message goes to print, I am doorknocking and talking with various people and groups. I look forward to full community engagement as your elected councillor.

Ballot Paper Name: MACPHAIL, Duncan

Nominating for: Councillor for Bateman, Kardinya, Murdoch Ward


As your fellow ward resident who served on Bateman's Community Association, Murdoch Precinct Strategy Group and local P&Cs, I respectfully seek your support.

Regarded as a straight shooter, I'm committed to serving our whole community, not pushing some pressure group's narrow agenda. Ratepayers should not have to financially subsidise minority demands wasting our rates.

My focus is on addressing our current concerns:

•  Combating traffic congestion around South Street and supporting the Roe8 completion.

•  Improving services for seniors, universal access and youth opportunities.

•  Securing a safer Melville with expanded "Smart City" CCTV initiatives in vulnerable hot spots.

•  Promoting local church/ voluntary groups, and securing funding for sporting club facility upgrades to accommodate our growing female sports participation;

•  Maximising commercial returns and establishing new income streams to reduce reliance on rates.

•  Ensuring inclusive community consultation where all voices are heard equally.

Your vote does count, send a clear message about Melville's future.
