Harrison Watt

Candidate for City of Yarra - Langridge Ward

Hi, I'm Harrison

I’m a renter, part of the LGBTQIA+ community and passionate about creating a sustainable, safe and liveable Yarra for everyone. I currently lead the Bike Lanes for Johnston Street campaign, advocating for a livelier Johnston St that is safer for people walking, biking, rolling or driving.  

I’m committed to creating more green spaces, transitioning council assets off gas and revitalising our local shopping strips. We can take strong local action on climate change through creating more accessible public transport, implementing renewable energy and planting more trees. 

So many people in our community are struggling with the housing crisis and cost of living. Council must support and protect rights for renters, and ensure safe and affordable housing for all. I will also fight for strong public services to support mental health, First Nations justice and combat men’s violence against women. 

I promise to be your local voice for Abbotsford and North Richmond and build a better future for our wonderful community. 

Your vote is powerful.
