Councillor Elaine has been lucky enough to live in the Waverley area for 20 years. She loves the area because of the beautiful beaches, parks, heritage buildings, open spaces and sense of community.

Elaine worked as a Registered Nurse for many years and is now working as an industrial relations consultant. She is also studying towards a Masters in Ethics and Legal Studies.

As Councillor Elaine aims to champion local democracy by promoting live streaming of council meetings and protecting precious recreational green spaces. She knows that parks and trees are critical for biodiversity and to give residents and visitors respite from increasingly intense summer heatwaves.|

She will maintain opposition to excessive claims of overzealous developers.

Elaine will be working hard for liveable neighbourhoods, community inclusion, planning for people not profit and renters rights.
