Simon Margan

Greens Candidate for Epping

G'day! I’m Simon.

I've lived in Epping for as long as I can remember. We moved here over 35 years ago, and I've long been proud to be part of the Epping community. This year l'm campaigning in the state election, as a new face in the political arena, with fresh ideas and new perspectives that will benefit the Epping area. 

As a qualified lawyer, I've built up a strong background in human rights advocacy. I'm passionate about supporting multiculturalism, local employment opportunities, accessible, universal public education and equitable aged-care treatment. 

I believe in state laws that incorporate a sense of equality for all people, regardless of race, gender, religion or sexuality. I am also on the Oceania board of ILGA, a United Nations Non-Government Organisation advocating against human rights abuses against gay and lesbian people.

As the Greens candidate for Epping I will advocate for better public transport, especially heavy and light rail, and stronger protection of our green spaces and local environment. This includes putting a stop to the rampant overdevelopment plaguing our neighbourhoods under the current Berejiklian government.

Together, I am confident we can ensure our Epping community remains vibrant and supported in future decades. In contrast to the major parties, The Greens always put community need before developer greed.
