Molly Kendall

Councillor, Glenorchy City Council

“I want us to stockpile community, not toilet paper” – Molly Kendall.

I love the Northern Suburbs! I have lived in Moonah with my young family for the past 12 years. I feel so lucky to live in such a diverse and supportive community.

I am standing for the local Council because I want to help everyone in our community thrive, and I want to show my 11-year-old son that the adults in his life care about the climate and his future. 

I find local solutions to big problems. I previously led Australia’s largest worker-owned co-operative: an industry leader in circular economy and diverting waste from landfill. I currently work in co-operative business development, creating meaningful jobs through diverse teams that achieve a lot with very little. I love my work and believe the Council will benefit from my experience and passion.

On Council, my focus areas will be: 

Climate Resilient Glenorchy – We all deserve clean air to breathe, fresh water to drink and a peaceful life. As the climate changes, Council can and should build support mechanisms for community resilience. 

Cost of Living – Things are tough at the moment; inflation, supply disruption, housing and healthcare are at breaking point. The Council is essential in rolling out local programs to support the most vulnerable among us in the community, so that together we can all thrive in the years to come.

Representation on Council – We all do better when we are involved in the decisions that affect our lives. I commit to being transparent with the community and bringing everyone along for the ride as we build a stronger, fairer community.
