Hello I am Jodie Moffat, your #3 Greens candidate for the South West Region, supporting Diane Evers MLC as she seeks re-election to the state upper house, the Legislative Council.
I live and work as a solicitor in Mandurah and have previously run for the Greens in the seat of Mandurah in the 2017 State election and for the electorate of Canning in the 2019 federal election. People in these areas may recall seeing my face around the place and in the polling booths.
Coming out of the craziness of 2020 and living and working in Mandurah for the last decade, I know how hard it is for so many Western Australians to make ends meet with rising power bills, rental affordability and the overall cost of living. I believe our communities are frustrated with politics and the major parties who seem preoccupied with big corporate interests rather than local problems outside the Perth CBD.
Everyone in our local communities should have access to what they need to live a good life.
We have good train lines but few local buses, we have more private schools than public schools, and we have precious few public hospitals and health services. Opportunities to develop local sustainable industries struggle to get off the ground and small businesses are left unsupported and isolated. But there is always hope, especially where you have a plan. And the Greens have great plans for WA.
I strongly urge you to vote for the Greens (WA) ticket for the WA Legislative Council and ensure Diane can continue to advocate for environmental sustainability, positive social change and a better deal for the South West.
Our beautiful state is blessed with a wealth of natural beauty, stunning beaches and pristine forests, fertile farmland and rich natural resources all of which need to be protected and managed sustainably not just for our benefit but for the benefit of generations to come.
There is enough for all of us, and the natural world entrusted to us, if we continue to work together. Vote Green so we can keep moving towards a better future for everyone.
