Hi, I am Rhonda Garad and I am running for Greater Dandenong Council in the Keysborough South Ward.
I am a health professional currently working as a lecturer and researcher at Monash University with a PhD in health policy.
In the 25 years I have lived and raised my family in the City of Greater Dandenong, I have forged strong links with the local community including as an office bearer on the School Council of my local public secondary school.
If given the honour of being elected I will;
drive greater climate change action by Greater Dandenong Council
strengthen Council advocacy and support for people seeking asylum and refugees
promote clean, sustainable waste solutions
advocate for high quality, affordable education and improved public transport services
deliver real gender equity improvements including more female community leaders
fight for the protection of the Greater Dandenong green wedge
support affordable, accessible and quality Council services and facilities
and, a safer, fairer community that is free of discrimination and strongly promotes diversity.
I commit to working tirelessly to enhance liveability for families and local residents and strengthen resilience in dealing with the challenges of the current pandemic.
Please join with me to work for a fairer and better future for all.
