Death of former Councillor Andrew Ho

The sad news of former Councillor Andrew Ho’s death has been received.  He was only 44 years.  He served as a Councillor on Strathfield Council from 1995 to 2004.

Andrew stood on the Liberal Party ticket with Laurel O’Toole and Eve Dutton was elected to Strathfield Council in 1995.  During his first term, he chaired a number of Council committees.  He was one of youngest Councillors ever elected to Strathfield Council at age 20.

He stood again in the July 2000 Council election and was elected as an Independent.  He ran at the 2004 and 2008 elections but was unsuccessful.

In recent years he pursued interests in thoroughbred and harness racing.

Andrew recorded an Oral History in 2001 at https://trove.nla.gov.au/work/34537213?q&versionId=42742911.
