Cath has lived on the Central Coast for 25 years, has been an active Greens member for the past three years and is currently a Co-convenor of the Central Coast Greens. Cath believes in the importance of developing communities which are inclusive, vibrant and healthy and which respect our wonderful natural environment.

Cath has been a member of her local bushcare group for 15 years. She has also been involved in a number of Greens campaigns on the Coast including Save Wyong Trees, opposing the Wallarah 2 Mine Proposal and the opposing the privatization of Wyong Hospital where she worked in the Family Care Cottage for six years. Homelessness and public transport are important issues for her. Cath is particularly concerned about good governance at the Council level and would push for the Central Coast Council to be transparent and accountable in its decision-making processes, for there to be active and on-going consultation with the community and for Council to be responsive to the community interests and concerns.
