Profile and contact
Cr Sue Whitington
I have lived in Norwood for over 30 years, enjoying its culture, character, liveliness and strong sense of community. That is why I first stood for Council election in 2000, and I am honoured to have represented the West Norwood and Kent Town Ward since then.
I care deeply about our City, Norwood, and our community. I advocate and encourage open and extensive communication between Council, the community and local businesses. I am absolutely committed to preserving the built heritage and character of our City, and to improving local amenities such as our parks and gardens. I am an ardent supporter of Council's cultural heritage and public art programmes, especially the installation of artworks in the wider public realm.
I have served on numerous Council committees. I am presently Deputy Chair of the Eastern Health Authority, and a Local Government representative on the South Australian Public Health Council.
Apart from Council, I previously served on the Board of the Cystic Fibrosis Association and on the Governing Council of Norwood Primary School. I am currently a Board member of the Carpe Diem Trust, which financially helps young people to achieve their life potential; and am a Volunteer with the State Government's Community Visitor Scheme, which advocates for clients residing in State disability and mental health accommodation.
Since retiring as a hospital scientist I have enjoyed my music, theatre, film, gardening and travel; and as a member of a community choir I appreciate the sheer joy of singing with others.
