City of Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard
Joondalup City Football Club is proud to have Mayor Troy Pickard as its Patron. Over the course of the season, Troy will attend some club functions and you may even see him supporting one of one of our teams on a Sunday morning.
We hope to build on the relationship with the Mayor over the season and future seasons to utilise his experience and network of connections as we promote our club and the game of Football across the City of Joondalup.
Troy has been involved in Local Government since 2001, making significant contributions in two of WA's largest Local Government Authorities - the City of Stirling, as a Councillor and Deputy Mayor, and then the City of Joondalup where he was first elected to the Officer of Mayor in 2006 and then re-elected as Mayor in 2009 for a further four year term.
From a young age, he has always held an interest in local communities and their development and growth, driven by a passion to make a positive contribution to people's lives.
He has received a number of decorations and awards throughout his career including a Distinguished Service Award from the WA Local Government Association in 2005 and a 40 Under 40 Award in 2002 and 2007.
