Candidate for Kardinia ward City of Greater Geelong
I have lived in Geelong my entire life and lived in Kardinia ward for the last 37 years. I am so proud of the city that Geelong has become, but with progress also comes damage to our natural environment and the increase in a number of human and animal issues. I’ve decided to stand as a candidate to give back to the community that has been my home for the past 60 years. I am passionate about protecting the environment and in implementing programs that will see areas such as the Barwon River return to its natural health. I would like to see community share of power resources and increased investment into renewable energy.
There is a need to address the concerning treatment of animals in our local area, this includes lack of funding for our rescue centres, but also duck hunting, greyhound racing, puppy farms, the use of 1080 poison and the culling of Australian wildlife.
Another area I feel strongly about is education. We need to educate the younger generations to be ambitious and dream big for their future, and ensure we provide the programs and resources that enable them to get there.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss the Kardinia issues you’re most concerned about don’t hesitate in contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org
