It’s Good­e­bye to re­tir­ing CEO

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

LO­CAL Gov­ern­ment Min­is­ter David Tem­ple­man farewelled re­tir­ing Town of Clare­mont chief ex­ec­u­tive Stephen Goode last week, 20 years af­ter be­ing best man at his wed­ding to Shirley Goode.

The pair worked to­gether at the City of Man­durah in the early years of their ca­reers.

Mr Tem­ple­man joked that Goode, who be­came the youngest coun­cil­lor in WA at the City of Al­bany at age 27, was on the short­list for a com­mis­sioner if they were needed.

WA Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Association chief ex­ec­u­tive Ricky Burges re­vealed that her friend and for­mer col­league had trusted her to read a draft of his first mys­tery thriller. While she was ini­tially daunted by the task, Burges said she read the grip­ping novel in one night.

Goode be­came chief ex­ec­u­tive at Clare­mont in 2009 a year be­fore the dev­as­tat­ing fire at the Town's ad­min­is­tra­tion build­ing.
