Kay Fraser

Mayor, Lake Macquarie City Council

Panel discussion with Mayors

Cr Kay Fraser is committed to making Lake Macquarie a great place to live, work and visit, building on its superb natural assets of lake, mountains, bushland and sea, its unique sense of community and its growing, fast-evolving regional economy.

As a social justice advocate who believes everybody should have access to necessary services and a quality of life that meets their needs, Cr Fraser appreciates the potential of digital technologies to create cities that are more inclusive and sustainable. She also recognises the importance of building a strong digital economy, to create the new-generation jobs that will spur growth, attract business and give young people employment options beyond traditional industries.

In October 2016, Cr Fraser signed an MOU with the Global Smart City and Community Coalition and is excited about the opportunities the partnership offers to collaborate with thought leaders at the cutting edge of digital innovation in city planning.
