Dr Matt Palmer
candidate for City of Parramatta council, Epping ward
I am a physicist and teacher. I will fight for the future of Epping in terms of its community, environment, traffic, housing development, and the causes and consequences of climate change.
I live near Epping station amongst the traffic, green spaces, community of young families, new residential developments, and local businesses. Epping is more than a dormitory so planning for the future of this suburb and its community requires more than just approving residential towers. I will fight for the community and environment of Epping by;
- opposing overdevelopment and bad planning decisions,
- protecting precious open spaces and tree cover,
- promoting compassionate multiculturalism,
- pushing for enriching community events, and
- supporting locally-owned businesses and jobs.
If elected to council I will work with others on council to implement the local climate action that is so urgently needed. I look forward to working hard with, and for, the community to improve our well-being and the prospects for future generations that are currently being sold out.
With the Greens NSW I work on truth and freedom in media, international relations against racism, and climate action.
I have a doctorate in physics and teach maths, physics, and engineering at Macquarie University. I have been teaching for about 12 years.
