A community activist involved in campaigns to protect Yarra's liveability, environment and heritage, Cr Stone served as Yarra's 2008-09 Mayor.
Having grown up in Orbost with the Snowy River at the bottom of her family home, Cr Stone has a special passion for protecting the Yarra River from the impacts of built developments to ensure residents "have a place to go to get away from it all'.
An advocate for a green and sustainable Yarra, Cr Stone believes it is important to acknowledge the vital role of trees and green spaces in cooling the city. She believes a better designed city would also help to meet the challenges of a warmer climate and provide an opportunity to honour Yarra’s unique heritage.
