New walking ambassador Cr Jodi Jackson
Talk the walk and walk the talk with our new walking ambassador
August’s meeting welcomed Cr Jodi Jackson from Hume as our new walking ambassador, who joins our trio of MTF ambassadors alongside Cr Anna Chen (Buses) and Cr Tom Melican (Cycling).
Jodi is keen to connect with MTF members about pedestrian issues and solutions. She’s particularly interested in pedestrian crossing times and the needs of at-risk citizens.
Jodi is looking at compiling videos of problems and solutions and would welcome your suggestions. Jodij@hume.vic.gov.au
