About Cr Fiona
Hi, and thanks for visiting.
Fiona Cunningham is proud to work with residents, charities, small businesses, clubs, schools, environment and community groups in her role representing more than 45,000 people in the Ward of Coorparoo.
Fiona was born and schooled in Brisbane. She has a Bachelor of Communication (Journalism and Marketing) and early in her career worked as a radio and television journalist in regional centres and in Sydney.
Fiona lives at Coorparoo with her young family, after having previously lived at Greenslopes, Stones Corner and Camp Hill. She is Civic Cabinet Chair of Finance and City Governance and was also the first member of the Lord Mayor’s Cabinet to have a baby while in this leadership position.
Fiona is a Director on the Small Steps for Hannah Foundation. She has become an advocate alongside local residents Sue and Lloyd Clarke who have fought for the criminalisation of coercive control and promoting healthy and respectful family relationships.
Fiona has been a finalist in the Australia-wide McKinnon Prize, which recognises outstanding political leadership and inspires leaders to deliver positive impact to their communities.
With two young boys keeping her focused on a better Brisbane for tomorrow, Fiona is passionate about striking a balance between affordability and liveability, as we prepare to be an Olympic city.
