Tony Lonergan

Candidate for Upper Hunter

Hello, I'm Tony Lonergan. I grew up near Muswellbrook and have worked in the family’s mixed farming business since the early 80s. I also taught science at high schools in Muswellbrook, Aberdeen and Scone over a 20 year period.

I have become increasingly concerned about the impact of our reliance on fossil fuel energy sources on our climate. It is obvious that change is coming, whether we like it or not, and it’s in everyone’s long term interest that this transition to renewable energy happens as quickly as possible.

The Greens policies are grounded in grass roots democracy, non-violence, environmental sustainability and social justice. In this context I will continue to work towards ensuring that the Upper Hunter communities, who have contributed so much wealth to the state, are not left behind.
