Inner West Council
The Greens in the Inner West have been working for their community on all levels of government for many years. Our 2021 Councillors are all long-standing locals proud to be part of an inclusive, caring, and progressive community. They believe in a community where everyone can find a place to live close to work and study, feels safe and is able to enjoy an active, connected life.
Councillor for Wollongong – Ward A
Greens candidate Caitlin Spiller has a vision for Port Stephens as a progressive, safe and caring community that protects our precious environment against the pressures of overdevelopment and climate change. She promises to listen to the community, value the natural environment and advocate for the voiceless.
We are thrilled to report that in the 2021 Hornsby Council Election, the residents of Hornsby Shire returned a Greens councillor each of the shire’s three Wards – Emma Heyde (Ward C), Monika Ball (Ward B) and Tania Salitra (Ward A).
Four years of a radical pro-development agenda from Hornsby Council has left our Shire in a mess. We must get better control over where our rates are spent, who gets to build what and the neighbourhoods we leave to our children – after all, just look around at the rampant overdevelopment, choked public transport and impassable roads.
Featured Campaigns & Actions
Local governments have a real impact in many areas of our immediate lives – they run recycling and waste collection, provide education and playspaces for our children, support local communities and provide venues for the arts, and they can take real climate action too.
Greens councillors and candidates are tirelessly campaigning for their communities.
