Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner (LNP) became the 17th Lord Mayor of Brisbane in 2019, following many years of experience as a Councillor and Deputy Mayor of Australia’s largest local government.

Adrian has a clear vision for the future and his goal is simple: to ensure the Brisbane of tomorrow is better than the Brisbane of today. By delivering new infrastructure for a growing city and investing in Brisbane’s lifestyle, Adrian is leading his team to transform Brisbane for the better.

Adrian is firmly focused on improving the areas where most residents live and his “suburbs first” guarantee is ensuring that at least 80% of all Council expenditure is invested in the suburbs.

Tracey Price (ALP) is a successful small business owner, a lawyer and a qualified mediator. Tracey has experience in the community, running a sewing centre business and a family law firm in Brisbane over the past 10 years.

The vision Tracey has for Brisbane is simple - more affordable housing, better and cheaper public transport, a climate resilient city and a focus on reducing the cost of living for every resident.

Tracey is a strong leader, who listens, and then acts. She has a vision for a modern, dynamic city where every community thrives. With her husband and three children, Tracey lives on the northside of Brisbane.

Jonathan Sriranganathan (Queensland Greens) grew up in West Chermside attending local public schools. In his 20s he moved to Indooroopilly, and later Highgate Hill and West End, before being pushed out to East Brisbane due to rising rents.

He studied law and arts at university and was working as a writer and musician when he won the Gabba Ward in 2016. He served as a city councillor until April 2023, focusing on renters’ rights and housing affordability.

He was the original proponent of BCC’s move to convert Victoria Park golf course into a public park and has been a strong critic of the council approving more high-density developments on the river’s floodplain.


The Queensland Media Club is the official political, business and media forum of the Queensland Parliament Media Gallery and the Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance.
