2021 Greens candidates for Bayside Council


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.
