Sylvie Ellsmore – Greens candidate for Sydney
Marrickville Councillor Sylvie Ellsmore is the preselected Greens Candidate for Sydney in the 2016 federal election.
Sylvie is a Native Title lawyer with a strong track record of getting things done for the local community as a local councillor. She grew up in Glebe and lives in Newtown.
“This is a critical election for those of us that value this amazing city, the people who live here and the environment that supports it,” Sylvie said on being preselected.
“I’m looking forward to campaigning with the community to defeat WestConnex, to achieve affordable housing for our city, to implement genuine solutions for climate change, and to put an end to the heartless and inhumane treatment of refugees.”
“By campaigning together we can affect real change. We can strengthen Sydney as a diverse, inclusive and progressive place to live and visit – for all of us, not just the few,” she said.
Greens NSW Senator Lee Rhiannon congratulated Clr Ellsmore and said “I’m really looking forward to joining Sylvie on the campaign trail.
Federal Parliamentary Leader Richard Di Natale said “Sylvie is an experienced and passionate advocate of Greens values and the people in her electorate. I’m so pleased to have her on the team,” he said.
