I was born in Queensland in 1954 and moved to Sydney in 1984. I have participated in Greens politics since the 1990’s.
I was Greens candidate for Reid (Federal seat) in 2001 and Auburn (State seat) in 2003, mainly in opposition to the Clyde Waste Transfer dump.
My interest in history resulted in a dedication, at Drummoyne Wharf, to forgotten Australian air pioneer and local war hero, Guy Menzies.
I am committed to the four principles of The Greens: ecologically sustainable development, grass roots democracy, social justice and world peace.
My view of local politics is that it needs more independent voices to counter the monopoly of the two major parties. I urge voters to elect Greens candidates for a principled voice.
