YANG, Jennifer

Jennifer Yang is running for Lord Mayor to end the toxic culture at
Town Hall. As a twice-elected Mayor of Manningham she knows
how to get things done. Jennifer will bring residents and small
businesses back into the heart of Council decision making. As
Lord Mayor, Jennifer will ban Councillors from drinking when on
Council business. She will double the pensioner rates rebate and
put more money into resident-led local park upgrades. She will cut
red tape for retailers and restaurants by abolishing unnecessary
Council licenses, freeze all rates until 2020, and immediately
commence a Council-wide expenditure review. Jennifer believes
that homelessness is a serious problem requiring a meaningful
and substantial response. That’s why she will build permanent
crisis accommodation to get those sleeping rough off our streets,
into safety and on the path to secure long-term accommodation.
Jennifer is a proven leader in Melbourne’s vibrant multicultural
community and a devoted working mother. She is passionate about
creating a city of diversity, equality and prosperity. Most importantly,
she has the experience and energy to get our great city back on
track
