Accountability evaporated

In the absence of action on workable climate policy to transform our economy and safeguard our future, lack of accountability on the use of taxpayers’ dollars, dwindling integrity among politicians and concerns about corruption and lip service paid to gender equality I decided to step into the room.

Having spent four years in the United States reporting on Donald Trump’s presidency, I know where that leads. 

I seek to represent the sensible centre, like many people who live in Goldstein, people who want pragmatic, reasoned decision making and deserve to have their voices heard. 

I was elected on the following pillars:

  1. Urgent climate action
  2. A vibrant economy for the future
  3. Integrity in government
  4. Equality and safety for women

We can wait no longer.

This parliament is critical to the future of our children, our environment, our economy, and our planet now and for generations to come.

I am doing everything I can to make sure Australia takes advantage of its unique opportunities to shift as quickly as possible to clean energy and manufacturing, to lead with integrity, to empower women and girls, all for our future prosperity and safety.

As my son powerfully puts it; “you have a chance to do something for us all Mum”.

We say to our children, ‘be the change you want to see’.

Let’s make our kids proud of us.
