NEW GOV­ER­NOR

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

KIM Bea­z­ley, of South Perth, is the 33rd Gov­er­nor of WA. Premier Mark Mcgowan an­nounced last Tues­day that the UWA pro­fes­sor would take over from Kerry San­der­son as Gov­er­nor on May 1.

Mr Bea­z­ley was most re­cently Aus­tralia’s am­bas­sador to the US but has been La­bor Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and held min­is­te­rial po­si­tions for at least half of his nearly three decades in gov­ern­ment.

Mr Bea­z­ley paid credit to the out­go­ing Gov­er­nor, say­ing “if I do half as well as the in­cum­bent, I’ll be do­ing a good job”.
