Jade Darko

Candidate for Franklin

I’m a proud Tasmanian woman, who cares deeply about this island and all who call her home. 

As a programmer, I’m used to analysing systems to locate flaws, then working to build structural improvements - which is a practice I can’t help but apply to society itself. 

I believe everyday people have been sold short by a political system that lacks empathy and vision. For too long, we’ve had our safety, our health, and the future of our very planet neglected by politicians who would rather look after their wealthy donors than look after our needs. We deserve better. But also, we deserve to look to the future in hopeful anticipation.

That’s why I’m with the Greens - I believe we are the only party with the vision to take on the big issues and deliver a safe and prosperous future for every person on this island.
