MACEDON YOUTH ADVISORY COUNCIL
In 2018, I made a public commitment that I would start a Youth Advisory Council if I were elected for another term.
I’m thrilled that the Macedon community has entrusted me with another four years as their representative so that I can make good on my promise to young people in my electorate!
The aims of the Youth Advisory Council are to provide a platform for the perspectives and priorities of young people across Macedon, to empower young people to take action, show leadership and learn about government and its processes.
I want to hear from young people across the Macedon electorate about what matters to them.
So, if you are aged between 16 – 26 and are interested in making a real impact in our community and representing your peers, I encourage you to apply.
Applications close on Friday 3 May, with our first event scheduled later that month.
