    "IT'S TIME TO MAKE PERTH A SAFER, CLEANER AND FRIENDLIER PEOPLE FOCUSED CITY. THAT'S MY ABSOLUTE PRIORITY"

    - Basil Zempilas

    PRINCIPLED LEADERSHIP, ENERGY AND A TRACK RECORD OF HARD WORK FOR THE PEOPLE OF PERTH

    Perth is the city I grew up in... and it’s the city my grandparents chose to make their home over 100 years ago.
     

    My dad was brought up in Lake Street, Perth, my mum around the corner in Palmerston Street.
     

    Everything their families had, they earned. There was no sense of entitlement. They lived for family and community and they believed in doing the right thing. These were qualities passed on through the generations.
     

    Perth has always been the city I call home and now it’s time to put my energy and experience to work for the place I love, to reboot Perth’s heart.


    I want people to be proud of Perth and I want our city to be the best it can be - for the businesses - big and small, for families, residents, shoppers, my kids and their kids! For all West Australians.


    That’s why I want to be your Lord Mayor, for our city.

  • MY PLAN FOR
    REBOOTING PERTH'S HEART

    A REAL ACTION PLAN FOR HOMELESSNESS

    We need strong leadership and a clear plan

    • I will partner with Beddown.org.au to turn our City carparks into safe places at night for people who are homeless. It works in Brisbane, it can work here.
    • The pop-up places will be an interim and safe option with wrap-around services between 7pm and 6am when the alternative would otherwise be sleeping rough on the streets.
    • Support and work with the state government to help break the homelessness cycle, “all paths lead to a home.”

    A SAFER AND FRIENDLIER CITY

    Crime and safety package to encourage families back into our city.

    • Keep the pressure on for 200 more police in the City.
    • Free parking for on-duty police.
    • Reinstate funding and support for regular Nyoongar outreach patrols.
    • Zero-tolerance to anti-social behaviour and review by-laws to address loitering and begging.
    • Extend and co-ordinate CCTV and light up Perth’s darkest strips.

    10 POINT PLAN TO CHAMPION PERTH
