Steven arrived in Brisbane from Taiwan in 1988 as a 12 year old boy who spoke very little English. He has lived here for more than 30 years and is a proud local with strong ties to the community.
His parents decided to move to Brisbane because they believed Brisbane was the best place to raise their family. At the time, Steven’s family never dreamed that he would one day be involved in politics and become a Councillor for Brisbane City Council, representing their local area, the MacGregor Ward.
Steven attended Runcorn Heights State School and Runcorn State High School. He completed a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Queensland with a double major in Government Administration and a Master of Public Administration degree. His passion for politics developed during his senior school education, when he saw how positive political representation can impact and change society.
Steven remains fluent in Mandarin and understands Cantonese. He hopes these skills will help him engage with and draw together MacGregor Ward’s many multicultural communities.
As the Deputy Chair of the Finance and City Governance Committee and a member of the Transport Committee and the Economic Development and the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games Committee, Steven will work hard to ensure that everyone in the MacGregor Ward continues to enjoy the quality lifestyle and services they are entitled to.
In recognition of Council’s commitment to representing residents and visitors of culturally diverse backgrounds, Councillor Huang is also a Lord Mayor’s representative for multicultural communities.
Steven believes in the collective wisdom of the community and is working with local residents in shaping our local suburbs to make sure we deliver a more liveable and prosperous future for our future generations.
