Elena Pereyra

Candidate for Maribyrnong City Council - Wattle

Hi, I'm Elena

I’m a westie local, parent, foster carer, Ph.D. candidate and experienced community advocate. 

Our local area deserves a representative who will listen to them. 

I have deep roots in our community and have a history of fighting for the west, engaging in local initiatives and advisory groups focused on active transport, urban ecology, regenerative housing, and climate issues. 

I believe that sustainable community-focused building and living are key to reducing inequality and prioritising ecological and social well-being over profit.

My Ph.D. on housing as an urban commons, my volunteer work with BikeWest and my role on the CoHousing Australia board reflect my dedication to participatory, eco-friendly, cohesive communities.

As your councillor for Wattle, I am committed to working with you to achieve sustainable community-focused development, affordable housing and living, green and flourishing active neighbourhoods, and a thriving arts and culture scene. 

Your vote is powerful.
