Greens MP Jenny Leong relishes the privilege of having been elected to serve the people of Newtown. The past month has seen her give an inaugural speech in parliament, set up an electoral office in King Street, and engage a host of constituents on key issues including the WestConnex project, the Central to Eveleigh development, affordable housing and the maintenance of “diverse, safe, vibrant community spaces”. It’s an exciting time for the newly elected MP who brings palpable enthusiasm and expertise in a range of fields well suited to her portfolio responsibilities: Arts and Creative Industries, Rental and Tenancy Housing, LGBTIQ and Human Rights.
