Brad Pettitt

pettittBrad Pettitt has been Fremantle mayor since 2009, and is now in his third term. He was previously a lecturer in Sustainability at Murdoch University.

His mother's ancestors, the Bashfords, arrived on the Caroline, 12 October 1829. (A Pettit [sic] was on the Calista, which arrived 5 August of that year and was the second ship to bring settlers, but it seems that he was not a forebear of Brad's.)
