What I have achieved in 18mths on Council

What a busy 18 months! These are just some of the positives initiatives I have put in place:

  • Communication: including more languages other than English
  • Children’s services: securing quality, affordable & accessible care
  • Sustainable water: recycled & storm water at facilities, sports grounds, gardens
  • Health & wellbeing: no smoking in playgrounds across the municipality
  • Planning: rejecting overdevelopment
  • Sustainable transport: advocacy for increased spending on cycling & walking; safety for train users & pedestrians around primary schools
  • Improvements to open space: Farnham Reserve Masterplan, Future improvements to Bent St Reserve & Debneys Park
  • Community development: empowering public housing community
  • Improved Graffiti policy
  • Working with local traders associations
  • An apology to our Indigenous community for past policies
  • Reduction in fees & charges at Flemington Community Centre

As a Councillor, who is a lawyer, educator and mother, I have earned a reputation for being honest, hardworking, approachable and persistent. In a new four year term, I will continue to work with all stakeholders and community groups fairly and honestly.

Help me to keep politics clean at Moonee Valley. In the postal election closing 28 Nov. please Vote 1 Rose Iser for The Greens.
