Candidate for Willagee
Rebecca Aubrey is proud to have grown up and worked in Willagee for many years.
A 29 year old professional and community leader, Rebecca understands the issues in our local community. Rebecca is the Deputy Mayor of the City of Melville and has the skills and enthusiasm to get things done for our community as the local MP for Willagee.
Attending primary school and high school nearby in Leeming, Rebecca fondly remembers visiting Adventure World and the Cockburn Ice Arena with friends and attending dance classes in Willagee with her older sister.
After graduating from high school she studied Law and Commerce at Murdoch University.
Having a job and saving for her first home was really important to Rebecca. While studying Rebecca worked at the Southlands and Garden City cinemas and later in hospitality jobs and at Adventure World.
After graduating from Murdoch University Rebecca worked as an accountant and then a lawyer and took a position in the mining sector. However the company experienced a downturn which left her concerned about job security.
Rebecca was then employed by one of WA’s biggest grain handlers and based at the company’s Bibra Lake workshop.
It was there she met her fiancé Bryce, who lived in South Lake. Rebecca was excited to learn about the projects revilitilising the local area including the proposed underground power and rezoning to allow new housing options close to activity centres.
Rebecca has a passion and commitment to our local area. She grew up watching her father Russell Aubrey serve on the City of Melville Council. He has led the City of Melville as Mayor for 9 years.
So impressed with the work he did and by the positive impact he was able to have making sure local voices were heard, Rebecca nominated for Council in 2013.
As a Councillor and now Deputy Mayor Rebecca is amazed by just how many local residents are making a difference to our community by working hard, supporting their families and volunteering to make our local area an even better place to live.
Rebecca has fought to ensure the continuity of the City of Melville’s Robin Hood project, a program that lets the community approve grants for local community projects and contribute to their implementation.
Rebecca is passionate about local sporting clubs and getting more kids playing weekly team sport. Our young people should be able to access safe places to participate in sports and recreation.
Rebecca believes rezoning to allow new housing options close to activity centres can bring vibrancy but careful consideration should be given to where developments are located and how they impact the amenity of neighbours.
If elected Rebecca will work hard for the community she represents. Rebecca will be a very accessible local MP.
With your support, Rebeca will apply her proven skills of communication, leadership, and local community experience along with her energy and understanding of politics and Government to work for the residents of Willagee.
