Candidate for Bancroft
I have lived all over Australia, and settled locally almost a decade ago with my husband who grew up in the area. I work as a lawyer in the telecommunications industry and we are raising two cheerful and cheeky boys.
Because the Bancroft electorate boasts one of the highest rates of residential solar ownership in Queensland, supporting a fair go for solar power is one of my local priorities. So too is working to strike a balance between development and the environment, because our area is home to many native animals including a significant koala population.
The Queensland Greens want communities to have a say in the development process, and make sure that political decisions aren’t based on the wishes of corporate donors. The first step towards this is to ban donations from property developers, fossil fuel and mining companies, gambling, tobacco, and alcohol corporations. State politicians need to stand up against privatisation and corporate influences, and work towards achieving positive outcomes for Queenslanders.
I am thrilled to be the inaugural candidate for the new electorate of Bancroft. I am standing for the Greens to ensure that fast-paced growth in the area is supported by necessary infrastructure and does not come at the expense of local wildlife, culture and heritage.
