She has been supporting The Greens for 15 years. “I believe that some of the issues which are important in the upcoming council election are the protection of our Coastal and Rural environment from inappropriate development. We must ensure more sustainable living in the local Kiama area through the development of community gardens, better public transport and local employment. I am opposed to the amalgamation of Kiama LGA with neighbouring Councils and will ensure that our council stays community focused and transparent.”
