I have represented The Greens on the Bega Valley Shire Council for
the past 2 terms, working hard to introduce principles of
sustainability and social justice into council decisions.
I successfully sponsored motions to make Bega a “Welcome Town” for
Refugees and to make the Bega Valley a GE Free Shire.
I want ratepayer subsidies to the woodchipping industry to cease and
will push hard for more regional public transport, including rail.
The Greens believe in caring for the earth and caring for others.
We have a strict code of conduct to promote honesty, transparency
and respect in public life.
The next four years will see major
social, economic and environmental change, and the ability to adapt
responsibly and creatively lies primarily with the community. The
Shire Council can actively strengthen connections and cohesion
within our community through advocacy, inclusion, skill, vision,
wisdom and respectful decision-making which engages different
perspectives. Our community is already initiating actions
appropriate to this transition. The Council can support and champion
these initiatives to enable regional vibrancy and real
sustainability which is not captive to short sighted self-interests.
I offer care, commitment, some experience and skill,
understanding of the three levels of government and processes of
inclusive, social transformation
I am a 24 year old interior designer/ lighting consultant and also
work as a casual close personal protection operative. My passion is
for promoting a healthy and an environmentally responsible
I am very concerned with the high levels of pesticides, hormones and
antibiotics found in commercially farmed produce these days.
My greatest ambition in life is to encourage every one where
possible to grow ALL their own food.
I believe that any time not spent on or with a horse is being time
When not working I enjoy the challenges of hand building a mudbrick
house on my bush retreat.
