Alderman Haslett is motivated by achieving outcomes for residents.  Born in Adelaide he moved to Darwin as a child in 1966.

Alderman Haslett obtained a degree in business administration and management at Charles Darwin University and was a lecturer in screen media at the Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education from 2014-2018. He has worked at MacKillop Catholic College since late 2018.

He is focused on representing community interest and sees the council as a “body corporate” with all public areas owned in common by the residents of Darwin. “The elected council is little more than a body corporate committee representing unit holders of property,” he says. “Just as I am the chair of the body corporate where I live, I represent the residents of Darwin on the City of Darwin Council.”
