Bev Martin - Liberal Party of Australia (1991 – 1994)

“It is very heartening to see Councillors move into State and Federal Politics and hold positions in the Ministry and Cabinet.”

Bev Martin was a Liberal Councillor from 1991 to 1994 in the Hunter Ward.

She was born at the War Memorial Hospital in Waverley and attended local schools before going on to study commerce at the University of New South Wales. Bev is an accomplished business woman having founded and managed her own textile business for 20 years before selling it to a Multinational. She runs a consulting business and her voluntary work includes the management boards of Norman Andrews House, WAYS, Sydney Wyde Housing and Southern Eastern Community Connect. Bev was inspired to run for council with other like minded liberals against the backdrop of the ‘Camelot by the Sea’ debacle, which was opposed to Gold Coast style developments on Bondi Beach. One of her proudest achievements is adding female members to Icebergs while endorsing a redevelopment of the Bondi Icebergs Club.

Bev left council to focus on her family and business but remains an active member of the local community.
