Senate (Upper House)
An Environmentalist and former Local Government Councillor.
Yasmin obtained a bachelor’s degree from the University of Western Australia in the field of Science (Health & Exercise). As an experienced teacher in both the private and public system, Yasmin understands the importance of Education and Training.
Yasmin has also worked in the disability sector, retail/manufacturing and tourism. She brings with her a broad understanding of the many facets that contribute to a well-functioning society.
During her term, Councillor Yasmin Bartlett worked tirelessly and represented the community on a broad range of committees and working groups. Yasmin was a strong advocate for improving compliance across the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework and was central to Council’s decision to dedicate significant resources in this area. Having been instrumental in changing the local government culture to give the real power back to the community, Yasmin now seeks to influence federal government policies to ensure the Australian people determine their country's future and not the vested interests of the few.
Yasmin topped biology for two years during her early academic years. Her comprehension of ecosystems enables her to understand the critical importance of maintaining our biodiversity and ensuring Australia progresses into a “renewables” economy. Yasmin walks the talk having built an award winning energy efficient home where she practices sustainable living and enjoys bush walking with her Labrador.

Good governance of any form requires continuous scrutiny by the people.

He feels that the generations who have come before him are owed due diligence. The generations who come after are owed the same.
