I’m your long-serving Hobsons Bay Councillor for Strand ward, and I love living in Melbourne’s best local government area.

I’m proud to be putting my hand up to continue serving you for a sixth straight term.

I get a kick out of helping people and doing my bit to preserve and enhance our lovely patch of paradise by the Bay.



I represent Strand ward which takes in the townships of Williamstown, Newport, Spotswood, South Kingsville and part of Altona North.

Having always represented this area, I have a good grasp of the needs and problems of our lovely part of town including development pressure, traffic congestion and roads and footpaths that need fixing.

I have been a Councillor at Hobsons Bay Council for over 17 years. In 2002 I became Australia’s first Maltese born female mayor of a municipality. I was elected for the fifth straight term in October 2012,and in 2013 I completed my second term as Mayor.

I’m fiercely Independent and believe in transparency and consulting widely. I made this the hallmark of my mayoralty. I love working with others to get results; my collaborative style suits the three-councillor Strand ward system.

My overall priority will be to continue to plan for the long-term, to adopt policies that best protect neighbourhood character and to maintain the village feel of our suburb.

Meanwhile, here is a sample of my key priorities for the coming term, many specific to Strand ward:
