Eleanor Spence

Candidate for Myall Lakes

Hi, I’m Eleanor Spence (Ellie)

I’m passionate about protecting our precious environment and reducing disadvantage in our community.

Together we can ensure that access to education and health is not dictated by postcode or income, and that everyone has somewhere safe to live. We can stop inappropriate development, end native forest logging, and limit climate change impacts.

I’ve lived here for over 40 years, working as a Registered Nurse at Manning Hospital and most recently in General Practice responding to the demands of the pandemic. I’ve seen first-hand the health challenges people face. Our region suffers from chronic neglect being (historically) a safe seat. Myall Lakes electorate is ripe for change.

I joined the Greens 20 years ago, tired of the failures of the major parties, and the corrupting influence of corporate donations. That choice feels as right today as it did then. I was the Myall Lakes Candidate in 2019 and a local government candidate in 2021.

Let’s preserve our beautiful region by only allowing development that’s sustainable and life- enhancing. Together, we can have towns that are pedestrian and cycle-friendly, with housing security for all. We can reduce domestic violence & limit gambling harms. We can transition to renewables via community battery storage. Let’s do this.

In seeking a better life for us all; Vote 1 Greens in Myall Lakes & the Upper House on March 25th.
