Goulburn Mulwaree Council

Our Councillors and Our Plan for Goulburn Mulwaree Council

Leah Ferrara

Leah was born in Goulburn and continues to reside here. She completed her schooling at Mulwaree High School and now works as a manager in hospitality.

Leah is supportive of local events where she regularly attends markets and shows at the Lieder Theatre as well as charity events like the White Ribbon Ball, Angels for the Forgotten Ball, participating in Relay for Life and the Goulburn Sustainability Festival.

Leah owns a house in Goulburn and plans to raise a family here.

If elected, Leah will ensure that Goulburn grows into a greater city. It has the potential and now all it needs is people who are willing to work for its future. This community needs a council with a variety of people to represent them and their concerns. A connected community is a strong community.
