Hi, I'm Mark Folkard, your local Labor Member for Burns Beach.
I was born and raised in WA. I now live in Clarkson with my wife Andrea, and we have two children.
Before entering politics, I was a Police Officer for over 27 years, working hard to keep our community safe. I have been a finalist for WA Police Officer of the Year for work engaging with community organisations to help combat youth disadvantage. I have also received several commendations for my work in crises and service in East Timor.
I’m a member of the Quinns Mindarie Surf Lifesaving Club and a volunteer firefighter with the Quinns Rocks Bushfire Brigade. I’m committed to making sure our community has the representation it deserves.
The Roger Cook Labor Government has a strong track record of delivering for our community. That’s why I’m proud to be part of Roger Cook’s team continuing to keep WA strong, put local jobs first, and invest in quality education and skills for our kids.
