What did we Ask?
Are you or have you been a member of a political party; represented a political party at an election; or worked for a political party?
Why did we ask it?
Although Future Bayswater is non-political we understand that some councillors and candidates are aligned in some way to state or federal political parties. Understanding these alignments can inform voters of a candidates ideology, their connections, their sphere of influence and possibly by whom they are influenced.
No I am not and never have been a member of, or involved in a political party. This means my only interest is in what is best for our community as I will not be worried about needing to answer to a party’s direction.

I'm an independent candidate, and therefore I'm not a member of, or involved in, any political party.
Yes, the ALP.
During the state election campaign earlier this year I joined WA Labor as their values resonated strongly and aligned with my own and those of my family. However, WA Labor does not endorse candidates for local government and I am running independently of any political group.
Yes – Member of the Liberal Party
I was asked personally by Ian Britza to help with his last election campaign for the seat of Morley, At the time I was a member of the Liberal Party. However I strongly believe that Councils should be apolitcal and represent the needs of all of the Community in a fair and balance manner and I have mentioned this position in my flyers.
I have been a political party member for 24 years, I have been on a ticket for the upper state house, all though unlike one councillor I have never married a politician and unlike one other councillor do not work for politicians as two of the candidates have.
