Solicitor, engineer throw hat into ring

TWO candidates popped in last-minute nominations for a vacancy in Vincent council’s south ward.

A solicitor practicing family law, Amy Fels has lived in south ward three years and has some previous political-ish experience as a guild councillor at UWA. Ms Fels says she’ll use her “experience working with constituents and stakeholders to foster transparency at the council level”.

Dave Evans is a 29-year-old engineer who says he’s “not politically affiliated,” and wants to develop community forums “to discuss safe and economical commuting to local schools, shopping strips and workplaces [and] making better use of our streetscapes”.

They joins candidates Mai Nguyen, Frances Harrison, Jonathan Hallett and Malcolm Boyd, the latter who’s also running against Emma Cole for the position of mayor caused by John Carey’s resignation.
