AS a community development worker my representation would be based on the principles of participatory democracy, community engagement, strong leadership and ethical practice. These are consistent with the Greens’ values. Our policies prioritise integrity, transparency and accountability. This is sorely missing from governments. Because neither I nor the Greens will accept corporate donations, we can properly represent the people and create a future for us all. As a local small business owner and active volunteer in several community organisations, I am committed to contributing to build the community by empowering all sectors of society including our most disadvantaged.
