Sam Poustie

Candidate for City of Yarra - Lennox Ward

Hi, I'm Sam

I’m an electrical engineer, cyclist and Richmond local. After losing my partner to cancer, a profound experience of caring for someone else, I wanted to consider how I could care for the community more broadly. Our local area deserves a representative who will listen to them, rather than corporations and property developers. 

As a homeowner and cyclist in Richmond, I am committed to creating a livable city with safe streets and green spaces. I work in energy and have experience in implementing climate friendly solutions. 

As your councillor for Lennox ward, I will make sure we take strong climate action, promote accessible services, and tackle the cost of living crisis. With our community’s support, we can elect a majority on Yarra council and put people at the forefront of our decision-making.

Your vote is powerful.
