Councillor Kara Cook - Morningside Ward

As your local councillor, I care deeply about our local area and the people living here.  We live in one of the best parts of Brisbane and I will be a strong voice for our community.

 

I want to know about the issues impacting you and I will always do my best to help wherever I can.

 

I also love to support our local schools, sports clubs and community organisations.

 

I’m here to help, so please don’t hesitate to contact me.
