Claire Garton

Candidate for Toohey

Hi, I'm Claire.
 

I'm running for The Greens to ensure every voice in our community is heard. I'm a parent, IT professional, LGBTIQA+ advocate, and passionate member of our community.

I love the rich diversity our area has attracted. I'm deeply invested in the neighbourhood I have made my home since 2005 after previously living nearby, and growing up in Far North Queensland. I have developed numerous local connections, and gained substantial knowledge, fostering many great friendships. 

Everyone has the right to a happy and fulfilling life, and my vision includes well-funded education and health services, creation of new local employment opportunities, as well as supporting community arts and culture. I'm entirely committed to this community and our future.

I want to put decision-making power back into the hands of the people.  The Greens are the only party to refuse corporate donations, which means I'll always put the interests of people first.

We have a comprehensive plan for Queensland, and we need more Greens MPs to make it happen. If you think politics needs to change, please join our movement.
