I BELIEVE IN GREATER
SAFETY, ACCESSIBILITY AND
TECHNOLOGY FOR OUR CITY.
For those who haven't followed my television and movie career, I am a media personality and artist who has immersed himself in good works and has created real change for many Australians.
If elected as Area Ward Councilor, I would advocate for both residents of, and visitors to the City in both business and home life. I want to see the old LeCornu site on O’Connell St developed responsibly so any future structure looks vibrant and meets the needs of people in North Adelaide. I want our Parklands upgraded so that sporting and community groups have modern facilities, as the current ones are outdated and impractical.
Finally I want to give back to this City and its people - who have been so wonderful to me - and create a prosperous and sustainable future for Adelaide.
Who is Quentin Kenihan?
My name is Quentin Kenihan and I’m an actor, filmmaker, online content creator, writer, disability advocate, and Adelaide personality. I have a genetic disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which has given me a lifetime of challenges to overcome. Being wheelchair-bound has given me an evolved perspective of living in the City of Adelaide.
Why vote for Quentin?
I know this city. I have lived in the Adelaide CBD for 20 years. In that time I have seen the good and the bad ways the City has grown. My program to make the City of Adelaide a more prosperous, livable city stands on three pillars:
- Access and Inclusion
- Improved pedestrian lighting and footpaths around South Tce, Carrington St and Frome St near the Adelaide Zoo
- Scatter Crossings all along King William St and O'Connell St. This will improve the flow of traffic as well as giving pedestrians more time to cross the road
- More and better road markings for bike lanes so that cyclists and motorists can share thoroughfares safely.
- Adelaide's Free Wifi system is problematic. I will push for the world-class, 10 Gigabyte Adelaide fiber optic upgrade
- I will promote business, large and small, investing and moving into the City of Adelaide to take advantage of the proposed 10 Gigabyte fiber optic network
- I will push for an app that shows every disabled toilet within the city of Adelaide
Access and Inclusion
- An access audit all public toilets with a view to have adult changing stations installed in all of them
- Park 9 and surrounding parks at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in the Adelaide City Council to have a fully funded disability inclusive playground
- Power Charging Stations for Wheelchairs and Scooters. Currently there are five recharging stations within the Adelaide City Council for wheelchairs and scooters, yet hardly anyone knows that. If elected I will push to double that to 10 and publicise it better to disability, elderly and community groups.
