Greens’ pick for Tweed

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

COM­MU­NITY ac­tivist Bill Fenelon has been se­lected as the Greens can­di­date for Tweed ahead of the 2019 NSW Elec­tion.

“I know the im­por­tance of jobs and a strong healthy econ­omy,” Mr Fenelon said. “But it must be sus­tain­able, not just cheap ex­ploita­tion of the en­vi­ron­ment.

“As well as jobs and tourism, I stand for a strong ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem, and will fight for af­ford­able hous­ing.”

While Mr Fenelon has been in­volved in the re­cent push to re­in­stall rail ser­vices to the re­gion, he is also com­mit­ted to pro­tect­ing Cudgen farm­land from the de­vel­op­ment of the Tweed Val­ley Hos­pi­tal.

“I am com­mit­ted to en­gag­ing with the com­mu­nity to bring their con­cerns to the NSW Par­lia­ment,” he said.

“Time and again our com­mu­nity cam­paigns have clashed with a bu­reau­cracy de­ter­mined to pro­mote profit for the ben­e­fit of a few against the over­whelm­ing wishes of the com­mu­nity.”

CAN­DI­DATE: Bill Fenelon will run for the seat of Tweed.
