Peter Matthews shared

Jim I think you were the first Malvern South Ward independent candidate and elected councillor
we politically inexperienced locals campaigned for. Your integrity was highly regarded by
residents and councillors alike. Your effectiveness on Malvern Council was encouraging to
other independent residents following you on to council, including Mari who also became
a South Ward Councillor and powerful change agent on council.
Jim you set an outstanding precedent and example of how non-politically motivated residents,
as local government representatives could effectively collaborate with other like-minded agents
of change, such as Ann Morrow from East Ward, Max Dumais first elected in South Ward and
subsequently East Ward, Tony Press in South Ward and Mari who together would end the way
the previous old men’s club controlled Malvern Council.

Rest in peace Jim. You made an outstanding contribution to Malvern as a South Ward
councillor acting with passion and great integrity. It seams like we campaigned together
just a short time ago. I wish I could have reminisced with you before you called it a day.

Strong memories
Peter Matthews
