Do you know who your representatives are at the federal, state and local levels are? After moving house I was unclear how my electoral situation had changed so I present below some information about electorates and representatives in the Ferny Grove, Ferny Hills and Arana Hills area.
You can always confirm your exact electorate by checking your enrolment at the Australian Electoral Commission.
Federal Level (election due mid-2013)
- Ferny Hills and Arana Hills are in Dickson represented by Peter Dutton (Liberal Party)
- Ferny Grove is in Ryan represented by Jane Prentice (Liberal Party)
State Level (election due before June 2012)
- Ferny Grove, Ferny Hills and Arana Hills are all in the Ferny Grove District, currently held by Geoff Wilson.
Local Level (proposed election March 31 2012)
- Ferny Grove is a part of the Brisbane City Council, Enoggera Ward whose Councillor is Andrew Wines (Liberal National Party)
- Ferny Hills and Arana Hills are a part of Moreton Bay Regional Council's Division 10 electorate represented by Brian Battersby.
Investigation of this information has turned up some stunningly useful ways to keep up with the activities and announcements of our representatives, which really deserve their own post.
