Emma is mum to a son at uni and a daughter at school. Elected in 2017, she delivers for her community and residents across Hornsby Shire on the issues that matter most: stopping over-development, planting more trees, protecting bushland and ensuring Council is more open and accountable.

Emma has been the driving force behind the plan to reduce plastic waste and reduce Council’s greenhouse gas emissions. She ran a successful campaign with local residents to get Cherrybrook’s buses back. Emma championed fair rents for community preschools and delivered new design standards for future high-rise development.

A passionate environmentalist, Emma also helped exempt Hornsby Shire from state government boundary clearing laws which threatened to decimate Hornsby’s rural areas. 

Emma is standing for Mayor of Hornsby because she has the energy, ideas and record of service to her community to make sure the community has a say on the big issues: 

  • reducing waste, especially plastics 
  • protecting agricultural land, koala habitat and our climate 
  • securing a safe crossing for pedestrians, mobility vehicles and people on bikes across New Line Road 
  • better bus services to get people to the trains and metro.
