Elected 19/10/2013 - 17/10/2015.

Elected 15/10/2011 - 19/10/2013 (Councillor for South Ward).

John Carey is passionate about making Vincent a better place to live, work and play. John has lived on Brisbane Street for almost ten years and loves the sense of the community and vibrancy.  As the co-founder of the Beaufort Street Network and inaugural Chair of the Beaufort Street Festival, he strongly believes in bringing out the full potential of the many urban villages that define Vincent.

John also wants to develop the City as a dynamic and forward-thinking Council, which undertakes strong consultation with the community and is focused on delivery of outcomes. This includes working to reduce the red tape and burden on residents and small businesses where possible – and making contact with Council a positive and engaging experience.

In his spare time, John likes to frequent many of Vincent's fantastic cafés – and take his dog Chewy for a walk at the local park.
