Hi, I'm Sue Virago.
I worked on the Australian waterfront for over two decades and have seen firsthand why we need to protect penalty rates and ensure that there are strong safety laws.
As well as working full time, I'm a mother of three and am currently studying a Bachelor of Sustainability at the University of New England. I am concerned about adequate funding for public education and will fight for universal health care through the protection of Medicare, and funding for public hospitals.
Transitioning to clean, renewable energy will benefit all of us, and we must act now to hand the next generation a sustainable future. The Labor and Liberal parties are holding NSW back, because they’re in the grip of fossil fuel companies. Only The Greens will create a renewable economy that tackles climate change, creates jobs, makes bills cheaper and energy more reliable.
