My name is Reynie Hafner and I am your Greens Candidate for Glen Waverley Ward in the 2020 Monash Council elections.
I migrated to Australia with my family in 1990 after having travelled and lived all over the world. I now live in Monash with my husband, having chosen this community as our home in 2007. As a migrant and keen explorer of the world, I consider myself a citizen of the Planet and a fierce defender of its future!
In these uncertain times, many of us are worried about the future of humanity and our Planet. I believe that the Climate Emergency together with the coronavirus pandemic has created an environment conducive to unprecedented global cooperation. As a scientist and humanitarian with multiple post-graduate degrees, I want to see us adopt strategies that will help us to move forward toward an ecologically sustainable economy, grassroots democracy, social justice, peace, and global responsibility.
I am not running for reasons of political ambition or personal gain. If elected, I will be a passionate and hardworking representative of our community and our planet. I will do everything in my power to represent your voice in shaping a future for all of us!
