Eli Davern

I’m the former Youth Mayor of Albury and 2022 Young Citizen of the Year. 

I’ve been a passionate advocate for the Albury community, in particular on mental health, climate action and promoting the role of young people. 

In the 2022 Federal election, I stood for the seat of Farrer, challenging Deputy Liberal Leader Sussan Ley, receiving a record high vote for the Greens and continued building our movement here in Albury.

During that election, I met people who require profound change in our society. The grandmother who can't afford dental bills. The young uni student who can’t find somewhere to live because housing is inaccessible and unaffordable. And the Nurse who cries in their car after work because of how under-resourced and over-worked they are.

Our community is suffering from growing inequality, skyrocketing housing costs and the climate crisis continues to wreak havoc on our state. These are issues felt most acutely by young people, but they touch the lives of every person in this electorate.  

Albury is a wonderful community but our voices aren’t heard by decision-makers in Sydney.

A vote for the Greens sends a powerful message that it’s time for real change.
