Councillor Clare Jenkinson

Clare has lived in the inner west of Brisbane for over 40 years. She has volunteered in the community for schools and groups as well as fundraising and events. Her first ever job was helping to make the afternoon tea at Bardon Bowls Club when she was just eight years old.

Clare is a community-minded professional and prior to becoming a Councillor, was a community marketing and communications manager for major companies in Brisbane, Sydney and Singapore. She is a jack of all trades who is not afraid to get her hands dirty to get the job done.

Clare knows that the Paddington Ward is a unique part of Brisbane - it is a historic, vibrant, eclectic part of Brisbane, which is full of beauty. She will use her skills to:

  • help local businesses prosper by supporting them and encouraging festivals and events
  • provide families with great parks and facilities
  • support local schools, sports and community groups
  • support all members of our community to enjoy our City and foster an inclusive community.

Clare is a member of the Infrastructure Committee and the City Planning and Suburban Committee.
