I grew up on our family farm at Southern Brook, and have always been involved in the business, currently working in partnership with my brother. I have a background in Agribusiness Finance, and now specialise in both Farm Business Succession / Transition Planning and Lecturing at Muresk Campus for the Charles Sturt University Bachelor of Agribusiness Management Degree. I have been involved in a number of community organisations in the past, most recently with the Southern Brook Volunteer Fire Brigade and the Avon Hockey Association. The most rewarding part of both my work and community involvement has been in assisting people and businesses achieve their goals. I remain passionate about seeing the Northam Shire and the greater region grow and look forward to continue to work with the community.

My family and I moved to Northam in July 2004. We purchased our home in Northam in 2005. I was a police office for nearly twenty years. The majority of my policing career was spent in the Wheatbelt Region. I spent some of that time as a Councillor for the Shire of Merredin. I left the WA Police in 2014, to pursue a career in the legal profession, serving two and half years in the Parliament of Western Australia as an advisory officer for the Legislative Council. I commenced a small legal practice in Northam in 2016. I am very community focused. I have been fortunate throughout my career to have gained experience in working in all three levels of government. It is with this experience that I wish to continue to serve my community, as a Councillor for the Shire of Northam.

I am Terry Little and have lived in the West Ward for 47 years. I am heavily involved in the community, sporting clubs and previously emergency services. I have been Shire Deputy President for the past 6 years and have sufficient time to commit as your Council representative. I am not a one issue person. I cannot make outlandish promises but will continue to push for improved facilities. This includes Aged care, medical, light industrial precincts as well as improvements in facilities for kids, adults and seniors. The West of the Shire is still expanding. We must continually plan for impending subdivisions, population growth and the pressure this will put on present infrastructure. While doing the above we must retain our rural lifestyle and country way of life. I will do my best to achieve what I have briefly outlined and continue to improve what we already have. Thank you.

I chose Northam to raise my young family and wish to sow the seeds now for future generations to realise the rewards.

My vision is for a thriving, vibrant and healthy community, where both current and new residents are proud to live and visitors want to stay.

I recognise the backbone of a strong community is a strong economy and I am inspired by the extensive developments occurring within the Shire of Northam. We have enormous potential in our Shire by boosting local business, investment and tourism. I have a strong business focus which will continue to support the sustainable development of the region while maintaining good financial responsibility.

It is time to move forward with a new perspective. Fresh decisions will influence positive change for our community now and the future.

It would be my honour to be your representative as the Shire of Northam Town Ward Councillor.
