Australia has many reasons to boast. One of those reasons is its hard-working and dedicated Ward Councillor and Deputy Mayor Tran Siu. Tran Siu openly embodies the qualities of his great and noble nation.
Councillor Tran Siu has served on the Brimbank Harvester Ward Council since November 2008. At the core of Trans Siu is his belief that Australia is special. Rather than join others who complain about the country’s imperfections, Tran concentrates his efforts on Australia’s qualities. He has come to this steadfast belief as the son of refugee parents. After many years of observing his mother and father, young Tran came to understand their gratitude to and appreciation of Australia. Councillor Tran Siu carries forth that same reverence and appreciation in his personal and professional life. In return for the good life that Australia provides, Cr Tran Siu continues to devote his public life to representing his country’s fine qualities by example and daily assisting its life-sustaining growth.
Throughout his early school years, while attending Glengala Primary School, then Sunshine College, and continuing to the present, he has skillfully determined positive ways to contribute to Australia’s Sunshine communities. With unswerving dedication, Councillor Tran Siu tirelessly fulfills his duty of directly serving the populace of the City of Brimbank.
Tran is clear-thinking enough to engage in the critical evaluation of his own pursuits. That evaluation crystallized into Tran changing his employer to Bendigo and Adelaide Bank. There, he was able to devote his efforts to dealing with and helping small-medium businesses (SME’s) that really needed the advantages of banking assistance.
Tran is dedicated to the promotion of a healthy, self-sustaining Australia market. His business banking experiences have created in Tran the capability and professional know-how necessary to actually contribute to that great good.
Throughout his life, Tran has taken the lead, while participating, as needed, in a growing network of associations. Over the years, he has been the repeated recipient of countless awards gifted him by those groups he supported. Tran Siu now expresses appreciation for those awards, but he also admits that he was much more humbled by the benefits others enjoyed as a result of those efforts for which he was awarded.
Tran has managed a strong track record of community participation and achievement. Councillor Tran Siu has supported such groups as The Lions Club, Rotary Club, Amnesty International, the YMCA, World Vision, Boccia Victoria and the Brimbank Council in 2003 – to name but a few. Tran has done this by way of his reliable participation and inspiring others to join and be passionate to make things better. Councillor Tran Siu seems to be a man bolstered by his own personal wish to do good for others. Tran recently shared his telling discovery: he found “that doing good for others far outweighs the hollow rewards of most faceless corporate ventures”. That sentiment appears to have taken strong root in the stated pursuits of Tran; he now earnestly seeks to increase Australia’s image on the world political arena and stronger economic growth. Tran is strongly determined to do this with the participation of creating many different links between Australia and its regional Asian neighbours, within areas such as trade, education & cultural exchanges. Councillor Tran Siu is clearly driven to help identify, as well as fulfill them.
Tran is driven for and dedicated to the people. If re-elected to the Brimbank Harvester Ward Council, Tran Siu believes his altruistic goals for that Australian population will be facilitated.
