Cr Clare Davey

A desire to play a larger role in her local community was one of the reasons Glen Huntly resident and Rosstown Ward Councillor, Clare Davey, decided to run for Council. 

One of five new faces on the elected Council, Cr Davey has worked in Local Government as a traffic and transport engineer for more than five years.

Cr Davey grew up just across the border in Bayside and has spent seven of the past nine years living in the City of Glen Eira.

When Cr Davey is not working as a traffic and transport engineer, she can be seen pounding the pavement — she loves running on the Rosstown Rail Trail or at Princes or Caulfield parks and hopes to complete both her third and fourth half marathon this year.

Cr Davey also enjoys visiting her local cafes and taking her three nieces to local parks, galleries and hiking.

Ensuring people can live the 20-minute city lifestyle is one of the issues Cr Davey is most passionate about.

During her first term on Council, Cr Davey has aimed to improve local shopping centres and make them easier for residents to access.

She has a Bachelor of Environmental Engineering (Honours) (Monash University) and Master of Traffic (Monash University).
