Councillor Jonathan Sri

Prior to becoming a City Councillor, Councillor Jonathan Sri has been a mediation facilitator, a youth worker, an events organiser, a law clerk, a carer for refugee children, a musician, a writer and a university tutor. He holds a Bachelor of Laws (Honours), a Bachelor of Arts and a Graduate Certificate in Creative Writing from the University of Queensland.

Councillor Sri was born in Brisbane and grew up in West Chermside. He first moved to the inner-city because he wanted to live in a higher-density neighbourhood with a vibrant nightlife and a flourishing music and arts scene. He is actively involved with a wide range of formal and informal community groups and subcultures, and is particularly passionate about standing up for the needs of residents on lower incomes who might sometimes be marginalised by the mainstream political system.

He loves Brisbane’s inner-south side and is determined to see it develop and evolve sustainably, with sufficient infrastructure investment to cope with a rapidly growing population.

Jonathan is a passionate cyclist and a strong public transport advocate, and recognises that we can’t fix traffic and parking problems in Brisbane unless we make public transport cheaper and cycling and walking safer.

Councillor Sri believes our current political system is being undemocratically influenced by large corporations, and that many of the laws and policies which govern society tend to serve the interests of a privileged elite minority rather than ordinary residents.

In his limited spare time, Councillor Sri enjoys playing soccer, chess and performing with various Brisbane-based bands.
