SHEPPARTON is alive with fresh energy as we look to the future in this year’s Greater Shepparton City Council councillor elections. There are so many new faces presenting with fresh ideas, new perspectives and with a variation of skill sets to bring to the team.

Seema Abdullah is a local councillor candidate for the Greater Shepparton City Council. This well spoken, warm and intelligent candidate hopes to bring her vast professional knowledge and experience into the council arena where her contributions can really make a difference to the community.

In 2014, Seema started working in the community as a participant in the Greater Shepparton City Council Community Engagement and Leadership Program. Seema said, “I have made excellent connections with so many wonderful members of the community through my volunteer work and I know that I can use those connections along with my own expertise to really make a difference.”

Seema is a member of the Women’s Charter Alliance Advisory Committee and like her own mother, is a real advocate for women in our community. Seema said, “My mother had a strong influence, always encouraging her daughters to have a good education, to be financially empowered and to follow a career that would be fulfilling.”

After completing a Masters in Business Administration, Seema won a foreign and Commonwealth scholarship to do further study in England for one year. Seema is more than qualified and is eager to bring her skills and experience into the council offices.
