We made history in 2016 when I was elected as Queensland’s first ever Greens local councillor in an LNP-dominated City Council. It was a turning point for our movement and community organising across the city.
We’ve taken on the property industry, the mining industry, the corrupt political establishment and the conservative media. And now they’re coming after us.
The coming election in March 2020 is a major litmus test for the bold, radical policy platform we’ve adopted here in Brisbane. A big win in the Gabba will have massive reverberations throughout Queensland.
We know that one-on-one conversations are the most powerful way to connect with people and share our vision for a sustainable, diverse, beautiful and equitable Brisbane. We’ve done it before, and we can do it again; but we need your help.
Do you live in an apartment?
New development and the recent redistribution of council ward boundaries means that at least 50% of Gabba Ward residents live in apartments that are inaccessible to doorknockers.
In order to engage with these residents, we'll have to get a bit creative - and we need your help! We’re looking for supporters who can host a ‘meet your councillor’ get-together, talk to neighbors about what’s important to them, help organise small workshops, forums and street parties, or just share your ideas about how I should connect with residents in your apartment block.
