John Fry and Cathie Hale are the Greens NSW candidates for Bathurst Regional Council in 2017.

John is well known in the Bathurst region for his longstanding commitment to the local environment. John is keen to support the exciting opportunities ahead, and believes that Bathurst can be expanded as a regional hub for small business in the renewable energy sector, local clean food, technology, freight, tourism, sport and education. Using his extensive experience in sustainability, land management and affordable eco homebuilding John will ensure Bathurst is climate resilient and food & energy secure. John is currently working with the Federal Government Green Army program, managing environmental projects.

Cathie manages the Bathurst Wholefood Co Op and is passionate about local food for local people, sustainable food production and better support for our growers and producers. Having lived in Bathurst for 20 years with her husband and 3 children, Cathie would like to see more street tree plantings, better cycle and pathways, historic buildings preserved and urban green spaces created and maintained for our growing city.
