Councillor Steven Huang has been appointed Councillor for Macgregor.
Councillor Huang arrived in Brisbane from Taiwan in 1988 as a 12 year old boy who spoke very little English. He has lived here for more than 20 years and is a proud local with strong ties to the community.
His parents decided to move to Brisbane because they believed Brisbane was the best place to raise their family. At the time, Councillor Huang’s family never dreamed that he would one day be involved in politics and become a Councillor for Brisbane City Council, representing their local area, the Macgregor Ward.
Councillor Huang attended Runcorn Heights State School and Runcorn State High School. He completed a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Queensland with a double major in Government Administration and a Master of Public Administration degree. His passion for politics developed during his senior school education, when he saw how positive political representation can impact and change society.
Councillor Huang remains fluent in Mandarin and understands Cantonese. He hopes these skills will help him engage with and draw together Macgregor Ward’s many multicultural communities.
As the Deputy Chair of the Lifestyle and Community Services Committee, and a member of the Environment, Parks and Sustainability Committee, Councillor Huang will work hard to ensure that everyone in the Macgregor Ward continues to enjoy the quality lifestyle and services they are entitled to.
Contact the Macgregor Ward office to arrange a suitable time to discuss any issues you may have. Councillor Huang looks forward to an opportunity to meet you and work together to find the best solution to your issues within the Ward.
