Current Member

Paul Lilburne (ALP)

Paul moved to the Carine area more than 40 years ago and has seen the local community grow in strength and diversity. He attended schools in the northern suburbs and completed his teacher's degree in Economics and Geography at Edith Cowan University in Joondalup.

Paul would like to improve accessibility to services for the aged with more relevant bus routings and encourage consideration within local government planning for the needs of elderly to reach health support services in times of need more easily.
