Your East Ward Candidates

David Roenfeldt

David first moved to Lane Cove in 2012 and fell in love with the area. The open spaces and close vicinity to bushland and national parks and the safe and friendly atmosphere makes it a great place to live.

David cares deeply about ensuring that the will of the community, is not only listened to, but implemented. His attendance at many, many council meetings in the last several years have shown too many times final outcomes have gone against the community. This has to change.

David is currently President of Lane Cove Labor and continues to have a close working relationship with Councillor Andrew Zbik.

David works in Castle Hill as an Environmental Test Engineer, validating products to Environmental testing standards. He advocates to represent those that do not have a voice. Many times, in his past he has represented his peers while studying or working.

David’s hobbies are playing guitar and learning about other science disciplines, such as space, geology and bee-keeping.
