Governing Freo-style – Interview with Jemima Williamson-Wong

In our Governing Freo-style features over the past number of years we have posted a range of stories, including podcast interviews with City of Freo Mayors, elected Councillors and, during the Freo Council election periods, podcast interviews with candidates.

One of the candidates to have already declared their hand for the Coastal Ward for the upcoming 21 October 2023 Freo Council elections is Jemima Williamson-Wong.

In this feature we bring you our podcast interview with Jemima.

We look forward to bringing you interviews with the other candidates in the lead up to the elections, as well as our reports on the results of the elections on 21 October.

Recently, we brought you our our first Governing Freo-style feature on the upcoming City of Fremantle Council elections – due to be held on 21 October.

As we reported, Jemima Williamson-Wong has already announced she is running for the one elected member position on Council in new Coastal Ward at the elections.

At this stage, Jemima is the only declared candidate for Coastal Ward, but we suspect others will be contemplating throwing their hats into the Coastal Ward ring as well.

Jemima has a very professional website which, amongst other things, proudly proclaims –

Having spent her life in Fremantle, Jemima has been encouraged to contribute to a better future for all. She is passionate about enhancing Freo’s core values through engaging in genuine conversations with the community.

So, we invited Jemima to an interview this week to tell us more about herself, why she’s standing for Council, and the issues she sees as important to Freo people generally and in the Coastal Ward.

Here’s the podcast interview our editor, Michael Barker, recorded with Jemima Williamson-Wong where the candidate discusses these issues and more besides!
