Rhonda Garad

Councillor for City of Greater Dandenong Council - Keysborough South ward

Hi, I am Rhonda Garad, your councillor 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. 

As your councillor, 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 work for 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.
