Carmel Murray

Candidate for Mulgrave

I’m a Cairns local devoted to mental health advocacy work and promoting our local economy.

As a long-time resident of the greater Cairns region, I’m aware of the challenges faced by our local workers and as the elected representative for Mulgrave I will work hard to ensure we don’t miss out on important job opportunities in the booming renewable energy sector.  

In the electorate of Mulgrave, I will work to tighten biosecurity laws in order to eradicate the invasive yellow crazy ant species that’s threatening our Little Mulgrave National Park and Wet Tropics World Heritage area.

As an active member of the community, I’ve been honoured to hold a number of positions on the board of community groups, most recently as a member of the Cairns consumer care and advisory group.

At the core of my personal, community, and work goals is the knowledge that we don’t need to sacrifice the environment or our people in order to grow the economy. I’m proud to be standing for the Greens in Mulgrave this election.
