As a small business owner I love my community.
There are so many small business owners in Lyons who are giving it a go. I understand the rewards and challenges they face. I see how a sensitive tourism industry can help us to thrive and prosper. I can also see how easy it could be to destroy our most valuable assets, our World Heritage Wilderness and our clean green environment. Protecting wild places makes economic sense.
For the past 22 years I've had the most rewarding position of 'mother' and parent. It is a role I consider critically important but often challenging and undervalued. It really does take a village to raise a child. Parents deserve as much help as we can give them.
I'm standing for the Greens because they are the only party which makes care of the planet and its peoples its top priority. We're a party that can think global and act local.
