I moved to Leonora in 1990 when I was 6 years old. I completed yr 9 in Leonora and then while attending the Leonora school was offered a scholarship to Aquinas College through visitors to the school. I then completed yr. 12 at Aquinas College and after this was completed started work in Leonora for Marlou Contracting. After work had dried up in Leonora I moved to Leinster and started working for Northfields as a labourer. I have since worked for Northfields now for 18yrs and have become a director of the business. I am a life member of the Leinster golf club where I have served over 10 years as a committee member. I am currently vice president of the Leinster golf club and race club. In 2020 I became a registered builder. I have strong ties to Leonora and my immediate family live in Leonora. I have a property in Queen Victoria Street I am also an active member of the Leonora Rifle Club.

I have served as a councillor on the Leonora Shire for the past eight years and have nominated again as I think I can still contribute to the Leonora Community for another term in that role.

I have lived in Leonora for over forty-five years and work in the district where my wife Cheryl and I, own and run a small business.

I would like to see Leonora continue to develop to provide opportunities of employment and stability to all members of the community.

I am 61 years old and have lived, worked, and raised my family in Leonora over the past 40 years.

I am currently the Owner/Manager of the Central Hotel in Leonora.

I am actively involved in Community Groups including Leonora Race Club, Leonora Art Prize, Leonora Children's Xmas Party and others.

I have been a sitting member on local Council for the past 17 years and I am seeking re-election in the upcoming election.

I would like to continue to sit on Council and have my point of view heard on behalf of all members of the community and to support and see through the continual progressive improvements being made for Leonora.

My name is Lexi, and I grew up in the Shire of Leonora on Glenorn Station until my family moved away to Kalgoorlie when I was 7. After mustering in the northern parts of WA, in 2005 I was offered a job as a Station Hand, back at Glenorn where I met my now husband Kim Moore.

In 2010 we decided to make the move into Leonora and purchased a house in Tower Street and made it home.

I am currently employed as the Regional Mining Registrar at the Department of Mines, and have been working there for the past 11 years.

I was elected for my first term in 2017, and want to continue to help the community in any way I can. I believe myself to be driven, and can be overly passionate, with a head full of ideas if nothing else.

If re-elected I will continue to strive for excellence, for our home.
