Mayor Cr Eden Foster
Term as Councillor
2020 - present
Mayor in

Our neighbourhood is a great place to live but it’s time for a fresh approach. I want to help get the basics right, including rubbish removal, cleaning graffiti, repairing roads, parks and footpaths, and taking a new approach to services for the youth and seniors.

I grew up locally and still live and volunteer in Noble Park. As a secondary school psychologist, I understand how important it is to keep our youth engaged. I was raised on values of fairness, equality and compassion. Residents will always be able to rely on me to listen and act on their concerns.
