Frank Mofflin was elected to the Fremantle City Council in 2019. He planned to run for mayor in 2021, but did not nominate, perhaps in order not to take votes away from the leading Labor candidate Hannah Fitzhardinge.
This was his pitch, as at 28 June 2021, from his Facebook page:
I put my hand up for Council in 2019 as it felt like a natural extension of the contribution I make to my community. This is the place which Jo, Georgia, Angie, Roisin and I call home, we love Freo.
In 2021, I am putting my hand up to run for Mayor, I believe I have the skills and passion to work with our Council and other stakeholders to deliver a Fresh, Focused approach for Fremantle.
I understand that our community needs to have confidence in our Council, the confidence that it will deliver community services and will focus on responsible financial management to ensure long term sustainability.
We must foster relationships to help Fremantle grow and celebrate everything which is great. I am planning to grow this confidence and, if elected, leading an accessible and responsive Council.
I am looking forward to the journey over the next few months and would love you to follow and share this page.
Talk soon, Frank
This was his 2019 election platform statement:
I love where I live and have been here, in Hilton, for 13 years. Along with my wife Jo, we have chosen to establish and raise our family of 3 young girls here and I want to represent you and our community. I believe that communities are better places when we are connected, with each other, places and services. I will work hard to grow these connections in Hilton, O’Connor and Samson to make them better places to live. I am invested in the future of Fremantle and want it to be the best it can be. As the inaugural Chair of the Fremantle College board I have represented the voice of the community to build a school which reflects its culture and ethos. My passion for community engagement and significant corporate experience have equipped me with the skills to listen, understand and make things happen for our community.
