Liberal Candidate for Elder

Young marketing professional and community leader Carolyn Habib has been elected as the Liberal candidate to contest the seat of Elder in the 2018 state election.

Ms Habib’s appointment is the result of a preselection college held on 18th February.  Ms Habib is honoured to be given the opportunity to contest the inner south western suburbs seat including the suburbs of Hawthorn, Colonel Light Gardens, Pasadena and Clovelly Park.

Carolyn has demonstrated a long standing commitment to serving the community and a proven ability to deliver results at a local level.

Carolyn is passionate, energetic and has played a proactive role in positively shaping communities over the past decade. Her contribution and leadership was recognised in 2003 when she was awarded the Marion Young Citizen of the Year Award. She has over 13 years experience in the not-for-profit sector where she has focused on community service organisations and advocacy for vulnerable, disadvantaged groups.

A former City of Marion Councillor, Carolyn has worked to address residents’ issues and deliver outcomes over many years.

“I am very honoured to have been selected to represent the Liberal Party in Elder,” Ms Habib said.

“Elder will be a critical seat for the Liberal Party to win in order to win Government.  I will be working night and day with my dedicated supporters right up to election day next March.

“The people of Elder have been badly let down by this tired Labor Government that can’t even keep the lights on, let alone reduce costs on families and create jobs in our economy.”

State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall warmly welcomed Ms Habib’s selection.

“Carolyn is a fantastic candidate with excellent campaign abilities.  She knows her community well and will be an excellent local Member of Parliament,” Mr Marshall said.

“With Carolyn as our candidate, I am extremely excited about our prospects of winning the seat of Elder and forming government.”
