Meet the candidates: Mary O'Keeffe-Burgher

Friday 19 August 2016


So far in our meet the candidates series we've discovered Alvin Aaron's favourite pizza is a Margarita, whilst Deputy Sam Mezec likes his pizzas topped with spinach and egg!

Today's candidate - Mary O'Keeffe-Burgher - seems to have an altogether more refined palate - a plain pizza with fresh basil and garlic, and for her favourite meal: sea bass paired perfectly with grilled vegetables and sauce vierge.

But, who would she like or not like to be stuck in a lift with? And who would she vote for in the election if she couldn't vote for herself. Read on and find out...
