I’m proud to stand as the Greens candidate for Lismore in the upcoming state election.

Having run in 2015 when our campaign nearly unseated a then incumbent National Party MP, this time we have a real opportunity to send a powerful, grassroots voice to the state parliament to represent our region.

As one of so many who was personally impacted by this year’s floods I’m determined to keep fighting for a fair recovery for our region. Relocations, voluntary buybacks and social and public housing must be at the core of the government’s response and Lismore deserves a voice who will fight for just that.

We are a community at the frontline of the climate emergency. Having been at the heart of the Gasfield Free Northern Rivers campaign which successfully fought off the toxic coal seam gas industry, I know how important it is to fight for the people and places we love.

Only the Greens will fight to phase out coal and gas by 2030 and for an adaptation plan that rapidly decarbonises our economy and protects our people and precious places.
