Charles is committed to building on the solid success of the Greens councillor on Canada Bay Council by putting the interests of residents above the commercial interests that motivate the major parties. Having been a resident in the Canada Bay local government area for nearly 30 years, Charles has first-hand knowledge of local issues such as childcare, waste management, sustainability and housing. In this area, we have opposed forced Council mergers, the demolition of houses as part of the WestConnex tollway and the building of excessive high-rise buildings with insufficient greens space and supporting community infrastructure.

Charles’ professional background includes wide experience in both information technology and community development and currently he works as an adult trainer.
