We approached Jason Snow who is running for Division 2 and asked him about his take on a multicultural Moreton Bay Region. Below is what he had to say.
Jason and his wife Debbie settled in the region after they married, and 20 years on, they still call Moreton Bay Region home, and have four beautiful children.
Jason has worked as a carer for people with intellectual disabilities for almost 19 years, within that time he has undertaken various courses about communicating with people from different cultural backgrounds.
MACS Inc. asked Jason what plans he has to contribute to building cohesive and more resilient communities?
Jason: I intend to be out in the community as much as possible if I am elected. I will consult with as many people in that community and with their contributions I am sure we can build a community that will be welcoming to everyone.
MACS Inc. asked Jason how he intends to support community grassroots organisations, such as MACS Inc, in delivering culturally rich and diverse experiences for residents and visitors alike; as well as establishing and maintaining projects and initiatives that help culturally and linguistically diverse communities grow and thrive?
Jason: I am all for the inclusion of people from diverse communities, I am passionate about coming out and learning about different cultures and allowing them to express to others about their beliefs and what their culture is all about.
MACS Inc. asked Jason if there are issues he has personally identified in the Region, from a multicultural perspective, that he feels require attention and solutions?
Jason: I have found while talking to people that there are some who are afraid of people from other countries, I intend to do my best to close that gap. I will welcome leaders from all the communities to come together and help solve this problem.
MACS Inc. ask Jason what his plans are for supporting the migrant and refugee business community?
Jason: I am a big believer for the right person for the job, no matter where they come from or what colour skin they have, I will be doing my best in breaking down those barriers.
MACS Inc. ask Jason if he believes it is important for Moreton Bay Regional Council to create and implement a Multicultural Action Plan?
As Jason answered YES to MBRC implementing a Multicultural Action Plan, we asked him how he will he make sure this happens during his time as Councillor?
Jason: First of all I want to be able to obtain as much details as I can before putting anything forward, then with all this information I can present this to council and get the wheels in motion.
Jason has indicated that he feels his skills and patience will be well suited for the job of Councillor of Division 2 in the Moreton Bay Region. He also stated that in recent times the Papua New Guinea community have come out in support of him personally and his campaign.
