Werte, I'm Hugo. I’ve been a part of the Mparntwe Alice Springs community for three years. I’m a retail worker and spend my days speaking to people from all around town.
I'm excited to run at this by-election because it’s time for fresh voices on Council who will secure a good future for everyone in Alice Springs.
Since moving to Central Australia I’ve been involved in the No New Pokies in Mparntwe campaign and have spoken to many locals and tourists about how we have to protect our town from corporate interests. I support the work of the many local organisations that are working to future-proof our town, such as Central Australian Frack Free Alliance and Outback EV.
My priorities for the next three years are:
- Driving local climate action with community solar and renewables, protecting our precious water, and getting Council’s money out of fossil fuels.
- Cooling and greening our town with recycling and food waste services, shade for playgrounds, cool places for people to escape the heat, helping residents and businesses to save water, energy and money, and jobs in restoring nature.
- Supporting community sports, recreation and the arts.
- Building a healthy and strong town with great services for young people, listening to the youth sector, and safer public spaces.
- Being your Green voice on every local issue, and making sure Council is fair, transparent and listens to the community.
Vote 1 Hugo Wells - I will listen and work hard on Council to make a great future for Alice Springs.
