About Zaynoun:

I'm a local resident just like you. I was born in Dandenong and went to Mulgrave Primary School and Nazareth College, before completing a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Deakin University. Now I'm working and starting a family of my own right here in Silverleaf Ward.

Zaynoun Melhem 2017

As someone who cares deeply about our community I believe our council needs a someone who can listen to their concerns. My family taught me the importance hard work and getting the basics right. I believe that just as every household has to live within our means, so too must our local council.

I want to make sure that Greater Dandenong remains a great place to live, work and raise a family. I want to see families and households supported with goods and services that are delivered efficiently to keep the costs down. I'll work hard to:

  • make our streets and neighbourhood safe through better street lighting and removing rubbish and safety hazards
  • maintain the beauty of our parks and nature reserves by encouraging local community groups and families to participate in community planning days and other outdoor activities
  • create better services and community facilities by inviting the people who our services to help identify the opportunities to improve them without increasing their costs.
