The decision to run for Division 1 at the next Sunshine Coast Council election has been one that Glass House local Jenny Broderick has thought long and hard about.
“My business experience, volunteering in community events and co-parenting four school aged children has enabled me to see ways in which our community representation can be vastly improved,” Jenny said.

“Local people are the lifeblood of our community. We work hard, we volunteer, we support and work in small businesses.
“We will thrive if we fix what needs fixing, and strengthen what works well. “I want to drive and promote opportunities that enable us to do that !better, together.” Jenny is committed to strengthening community sense of belonging.”I am dedicated to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all our children, providing pathways for strong job prospects as they grow and providing ways to access the services we require. “I would consider it a privilege to represent Division 1 and will do so with integrity and humility.”
