About Tracey

About Tracey Main Image

City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts is WA Labor's candidate for Pearce at the upcoming Federal election.

Since being elected to Council in 2003, Tracey has been a local champion for almost 20 years. She sits on a number of school boards and is patron and committee member of dozens of community organisations.

Tracey is a strong advocate for Western Australia as President of the Western Australian Local Government Association and Vice President of the Australian Local Government Association.

In the mid-1980’s, Tracey emigrated to Australia with her husband David, who passed away in 1995 after a long battle with cancer. Their son Lee was only four years old.

Tracey remarried and had a second son, Matthew with her husband Pete.

In 2008, Tracey was diagnosed with breast cancer.

It was the Wanneroo community who got her through these challenging times, and that support has driven her to give back.

Tracey has a proven track record of delivering for the City of Wanneroo, and has worked side by side with Premier Mark McGowan to deliver key infrastructure projects for Perth’s northern suburbs.

In 2020, Tracey was appointed by the State Government to the State Recovery Advisory Group to drive the economic recovery from COVID-19.

Voters in Pearce have not forgotten that Scott Morrison and Christian Porter attacked Mark McGowan and sided with Clive Palmer to open our borders at the height of the pandemic.

Tracey will be a part of an Albanese Labor Government that will work with Mark McGowan - not against him - to stand up for WA.
