Fremantle South Ward

There are six wards in the local government area called the 'City' of Fremantle.
South Ward corresponds closely with South Fremantle suburb, being bounded by the ocean, South Street to the north, and 'Fremantle Village' trailer park to the south, but whereas the suburb only extends east to Cockburn/Hampton Roads, the ward also includes a big chunk of Beaconsfield suburb, from Scott Street northwards, over as far as Caesar Street, and so including much of the former Lefroy/Curedale/Davies farm - but not the (former?) 'Beacy Bronx', including Davis [Davies] Park.

Councillors currently representing South Ward are Andrew Sullivan (1992-98, 2009-2021) and Marija Vujcic (2019-2023).

Candidates in the 2021 election are Steven Pynt, Jennifer Suffling, and Andrew Sullivan (2009-2021) who from mid-2021 is acting as Mayor until the election. Marija Vujcic is also a mayoral candidate. If she were successful, that would require a by-election in this ward.

I don't have an official nor complete list to work from, but I can mention for your interest some councillors who have represented this ward previously. I'm assuming the year stated indicates the period January-October, as elections are usually held in the latter month, close to the end of the calendar year. This list may contain errors and does contain omissions.
