Six months ago I was ready to stand down from Council and move on with my life and career as a teacher. I graduated late 2014 and really feel that teaching is in my DNA.
Sick of watching the fighting between the Liberals on Council namely Guile and Gash, I really questioned if my impact was worth the dross. I really was feeling over it. So with my decision made I started to tell people at various community groups that I wouldn’t be standing unless something radical happened to make me change my mind.
Something happened alright and that started with an amazing bunch of people putting their hand up to get into the trenches of council. The lead candidates Nina Cheyne, John Levett and Kaye Gartner would have to be the most formidable combination of minds that have graced the ballot boxes in a long time, they really are the perfect team. Behind them are 9 other wonderful people who have lent their names and energy to the campaign to get the lead ones elected.

These people all energise and every one of them has the right stuff to be a councillor.
People are getting sick of the old party politics in the Shoalhaven, for too long all three levels of government have been tied up with conservative outlooks that have a mantra that is a growth at any cost position. No matter what the result is on election day, I know that over the coming weeks of the election campaign The Greens in Shoalhaven, have a positive message of inclusivity and community based solutions which we can start to deliver over the next 4 years. With your help we can make it a reality not a dream ~ A Green Mayor the question isn’t why but why not.
