“When the existing Greens councillor decided to retire, I sought nomination and was duly elected. The previous term council had been often dysfunctional and the community wasn’t well served. I wanted to change that while ensuring the Greens’ values continue to be incorporated into council decision making.

It’s essential to have a well-functioning council to be effective in the fight to retain the natural beauty and environment of the Southern Highlands.”
