State Election 2015
In 2015 we have the opportunity to reset NSW politics. To create a clean economy, a fair and inclusive society and to remove the corrupting influence of money politics.
In the inner west we will be campaigning to keep our communities diverse, our housing affordable, to transition to 100% renewables and to build a 21st century public transport system.
At this election we have a real choice between:
- privatisation vs public investment
- money politics vs democracy
- cuts in community services vs investment in a caring community
- massive new road projects vs investment in public transport
- dirty coal vs renewable energy
- the politics of fear vs an inclusive society, and
- discrimination vs human rights for all.
Meet the Greens candidates
With the creation of the new seat of Newtown, when residents go to the polls on 28 March 2015 they will have the opportunity to elect the Greens candidate Jenny Leong, a human rights activist and former president of the University Sydney postgraduate association.
