Karyn Starmer Mayoral Candidate
Change is upon us. If we don’t act now to shift the way our Eurobodalla Shire Council plans for growth, protects our Shire’s natural beauty and our relaxed way of life, we’ll end up as another sprawling, generic, urban environment.
I’m running for Mayor because I love where we live. I’m an ex-markets trader, now a journalist. I’m highly analytical and organised, trained to ask hard questions, a strong communicator and leader. I care deeply about our communities, so I’ll serve you with integrity, transparency and remain free from outside influence. I’ll restore balance in the Chamber, so your Councillors drive the agenda.
As your Mayor, I’ll earn – and value – your trust.
I’m running for Mayor of Eurobodalla because I love where we live. We need a more proactive, transparent and creative Council that strategically plans for growth, protects our Shire’s natural beauty and safeguards our relaxed way of life. If we don’t act now, we’ll end up as another sprawling, generic, urban environment.

About Karyn ...
After escaping Sydney in the 1990s Karyn, and her GP husband Neil, settled in Moruya with their two small children in 1999.
An ex-financial markets trader, Karyn is now a journalist working for Region Media, publishers of About Regional and The RiotACT, and ABC Radio.
Committed to her local community, Karyn has held positions in many local school, club and community organisations including Moruya SLSC, Broulee Dolphins RUFC, South Coast Anglican Schools Board, Mirrabooka Riding Club and the Moruya Jazz Festival.
An effective communicator and efficient organiser, Karyn is seeking election to council because she believes the Eurobodalla is at an important crossroad in its history, “If we do not act now to change the way our council plans for growth, serves its community and protects our natural assets and our relaxed way of life, we will end up as yet another sprawling, unfriendly, urban environment. The Eurobodalla deserves better local government and a better future.”
