Laura Nuttall

Hi, I'm Laura,

I grew up right here in Brindabella, in Richardson, and it’s been my care for my community here in the South and the people around me that has always driven me forward. I became involved in politics to fight for refugee rights and faster action on climate change, and started to think about what needed to change locally when confronted with the dire state of my local shops in Richardson.

Before becoming your MLA for Brindabella, I graduated from ANU with bachelors in Asia Pacific studies and Politics, Philosophy and Economics, and then worked in ACT Libraries.

Then, when I became the first Gen Z MLA to any Parliament in Australia in 2024 in 2023, I put those values and causes into action. As a young, queer woman with ADHD, I didn’t see people like me in any Australian parliament, and I’m so glad that I can be a voice for communities that traditionally have very little say in the affairs of government.

It’s my passion for environmental and economic justice that has driven me to run for re-election as your representative for Brindabella, to put Tuggeranong first, revitalise our neighbourhoods and tackle the climate and cost of living crises.

In 2020, we made history by electing six Greens MLAs to the Legislative Assembly, and we’ve made great strides since then, but there’s still so much more to do. Join me and together, we can fight the inequality and climate crises, and build a more progressive Canberra.
