About Rhonda

My vision for Keysborough South Ward is for a community well supported to face the challenges of COVID and thrive in the post pandemic recovery. I will work for a safer, stronger, fairer community, providing high quality facilities and services. I am a health professional, former small business owner and I have a strong track record as a voice for community groups, or listening and then developing plans that respond to community needs.
