Belinda Hassan, Labor’s candidate for Dawson, is a small business manager, domestic violence support worker, selfless volunteer for the community and a passionate advocate for the rights of our community’s most vulnerable.
After enduring the tragic experience of the death of her little grandson in a swimming pool drowning, Belinda was drawn to serve as the Manager of Mackay Funerals, where she currently works. This experience has made Belinda even more passionate about maintaining a first-class public health system.
Belinda is also a support worker for the Samaritan House Domestic Violence Shelter in Mackay, which is a labour of love.
Belinda has always combined her professional life with sustained and active involvement in her local community. She serves as the current President of the Sarina Lions Club and Treasurer of the Zonta Club of Mackay, and is the past President of the Rotary Club of Mackay Sunrise. She has also volunteered for the Domestic Violence Resource Service, Cancer Council Queensland and the Mackay Region Suicide Prevention Network.
As a fifth generation local, Belinda Hassan is a genuine voice for all people living in our local community.
