Councillor Jonathan Sri is a writer, musician and community worker who was elected in March 2016 as Brisbane’s first ever Greens city councillor, representing the Gabba Ward.
Jonno campaigned on a bold platform focussed on making our city more sustainable, equitable and democratic, and addressing the negative impacts of gentrification and speculative property investment. He is firmly opposed to unsustainable, profit-oriented over-development, and believes that residents should have more say over how their city changes and evolves.
Jonathan was successfully re-elected in March 2020, and is prioritising local issues such as housing affordability and economic justice, improving public transport, creating more walkable pedestrian-friendly neighbourhoods, greening our city, greater support for the arts and community events, and greater transparency and democratic accountability in local government.
