A research physicist with a passion for the environment and sustainability has won a seat on council.
Councillor Nathan Prior joins returning Cnr Bruce Hull to represent Warracowie Ward after Carolyn Habib, who served for one term, did not seek re-election.
Cr Prior put sustainable living at the top of his agenda.
“I want to make sure Marion’s infrastructure, including water supply and drainage, can cope as the city develops,” he said.
“I am also interested in tackling issues associated with development, traffic and car parking.
“My decision to nominate was made on the spur of the moment, so I was surprised but pleased to be elected and look forward to helping out the community.”
Cnr Prior develops and tests analytical equipment, including for the mining industry, has a PhD from Flinders University and lives in Oaklands Park with his wife and two daughters.
Cr Hull, who lives in Warradale, was re-elected for a second consecutive term.
He would like to see council deliver major projects and intends to continue campaigning to reduce traffic congestion.
“I’m happy to be re-elected and excited about the next four years on council,” Cr Hull said.
“Upgrading Oaklands Crossing is something I will advocate for, along with mitigating the impacts of paid car parking in suburbs around Westfield Marion Shopping Centre.
“I would like council to develop projects, such as building sporting hubs in Hallett Cove and Mitchell Park while living within its means.”
Cr Hull is married with two daughters, is a registered nurse, and CFS volunteer.
