Ian White - Candidate for Council

Meet the newest candidate for Pittwater Council Central Ward

Ian White has been involved in the Pittwater community for most of his life. Ian attended Pittwater High School, has taught at Avalon Primary and now Newport Primary for a total of 19 years, and has devoted countless hours to the local Fire Service as its current Vice President and District Trainer. And now, with your support, Ian is excited to take the next step in his service to our community & as a candidate in the Pittwater Council elections on September 13.

As an independent candidate, Ian will bring this long-term commitment and experience to ensuring that the whole community benefits from Council decisions, and take every opportunity to support the strong and caring community that he's enjoyed taking an active part in for so many years.

Come along and meet Ian and cheer him on this Friday from 4pm at Church Point Wharf. There'll be live music, a sausage sizzle and lots of good company.

Of course, running as an independent also means that Ian is without an established party 'machine' to fall back on, so he's looking to his local community for support. It might be as simple as mentioning his name and his long-standing passion for Pittwater to a few friends, you might be willing to contribute to the cost of campaigning, or have some great ideas to let others know about him. We're just getting started, and we'd value your ideas and your support.
To offer your support, email WhitieWillWin@gmail.com or call Sandy on 0415 055 892.
