Hi, I'm Bernadette Thomas
I’m an active local councillor with a driving passion for supporting strong, diverse communities in Melbourne’s west. With your support, we can address the challenges in our local areas, from young people and families being locked out of the housing market to reducing harm from gambling, and poor air quality.
The climate crisis is already impacting us - the western suburbs are hotter and drier than the rest of Melbourne. We need to tackle the climate crisis by replacing coal and gas with 100% renewable energy by 2030.
Victoria has a housing crisis. The Greens will end out-of-control rent rises, make big property developers pay their fair share for more affordable homes and ensure everyone can access safe, affordable, and comfortable rental housing.
With your vote, the Greens will stop the major parties taking us for granted and ensure the government puts people above profit.
